So many weird wedge issues in the UK. Fox hunting..trident there is virtually no threat of nuclear war right now or the near future, the concept of MAD is obsolete.

Is Fox Hunting really a wedge issue though? Don't the vast majority of people oppose it though?

The vast majority opposes it and it's illegal (banned under Blair), but legalisation is in Conservative manifesto.

A bare NDP-green majority sounds like a recipe for disaster. At this rate, Libs will be back in power within a year or two.

Doubtful. Losing corporate donations will cripple the Liberal Party.

Clark will not be resigning as Premier and will convene the Legislative Assembly in June to force a standoff on the floor.
She does give a vibe that she's conceding she will lose the vote. But when asked if she thinks the LG will call another vote, she responded with a clear no.

Oh certainly. The LG would be almost certainly refuse a request for a new election if Clark asked for one.

She made clear she wouldn't ask one and is ready to become the Opposition Leader, should the likely event of losing that vote happens.

Liberals up to 27. I think a call will come soon.

I think they'll wait for 26 Liberals elected.
Liberals took lead in Waverley-Fall River-Beaver Bank, but 2 polls left, can change again.

Liberal GAIN over NDP in Chester-St. Margaret by 90 votes.

Also puts Liberals at 26, a majority.
68  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: 2017 Nova Scotia election (May 30) on: May 30, 2017, 10:23:41 pm
I think the Liberals have a good chance to win where they're down by only eight, Cole Harbour-Eastern Passage, where they're down by around 100, Cape Breton-Richmond where they're down by 13, and Chester-St. Margaret where they're only down by 46. Since absentee is leaning Liberal, those all may be red by the time every vote is counted.

Cape Breton-Richmond PC GAIN by 20 votes.

Major upset. Liberal incumbent was in Assembly since 1998.
69  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: 2017 Nova Scotia election (May 30) on: May 30, 2017, 09:57:20 pm
Seems absentee vote is VERY Liberal. Nothing done yet.

Nobody stuffs the ballot box like Liberals stuff the ballot box. Cheesy (Just kidding, probably)

Well, apparently, absentee boxes can have 3500 votes.

It seems every riding still has the advanced poll out.  In P.E.I the Liberals gained a few seats when the advanced polls came in, so if this is the same in Nova Scotia, the Liberals would likely end up with a narrow majority.

Elections NS says those numbers should be out in the next 35 minutes.

Automatic recount is the lead is below 10 votes.

Candidates can also ask one, against a 100$ deposit.
