Throwing out a wild (and almost certainly) inaccurate guess.

35% SYRIZA
32.5% ND
  9.0% XA
  5.5% Potami
  5.0% KKE
  4.0% PASOK
  3.5% ANEL
  2.0% Kinima
  3.5% Others

Representative Matt is a friend, but those increases are patently ridiculous.

A $20-25 dollar minimum wage over the next decade is an atrocious. It's been observed nationwide in the past that even something as small as a 15% hike in minimum wage can put 400,000 to 800,000 marginal workers out of a job, and I don't even want to imagine how many individuals would be put on unemployment by this bills and how many companies would choose to leave the region... The damage in terms of jobs would be in the millions, while economic losses could be in the billions.

I've asked Lt. Governor Matt to amend these mistakes as soon as possible; I do not think he purposefully made this mistake. Anyone is welcome to file a court case though.

A useless "constituencies" poll has been released for the electorates of Cairns, Ipswich West, and Keppel- none of which have anything in common....

It shows the combined TPP in these seats going from 57.4% LNP in 2012 to 56% ALP today.

This isn't a major shocker since these seats are on single digit margins, and I really wish the money had been better spent on a poll that actually meant something, but I guess we'll have to make do with what info we have.

There will be a ReachTEL poll released at 6pm Brisbane time.

I'm expecting we'll see a strong swing to the LNP- Labor's campaign has been awful while the LNP's has been brilliant.

So Labor is still running junks ads as if they haven't learned anything from their awful 2012 campaign.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wptJMNV_qsY

I'm increasingly convinced this will be a double digit LNP win or close to it in the end. Labor may not even break twenty seats.
Weren't you the guy that said the LNP would retain Redcliffe and Stafford?

I predicted a Labor win in Stafford, and a narrow LNP win in Redcliffe, so a 50% track record?

(Ok, my post above was slight hyperbole, but I am very frustrated and pessimistic)

I would like to welcome Representative Matt into the race and thank Representative SirNick for his participation. I am still looking forward to having a good campaign.



Presidential Endorsement

I am pleased to offer my support to the Bore/Bacon King ticket. I have known both these gentlemen for over two years now, and both are among the most active and accomplished individuals in this game. I am proud to have been one of the first to encourage Bore to run for the Senate in 2013, and he has served fine excellent terms thing then. He has been a workhorse of a Senator, and one of the few to be consistently active while he has strived to make internal improvements in the working of this game. His recent terms as Speaker have taken away some of the unnecessary bureaucracy that was plaguing the game while making it far more enjoyable. I am confident he will succeed as President. As for Bacon King, he is one of the finest legal minds in Atlasia and has served four terms as President. His most recent stint in the Senate has dissuaded me from any worries I may have had about his activity.

This is not say that the POTUS/Maxwell ticket would not do a good job. Riley has taken his role as SoEA very seriously and redeemed himself for his mostly absent stint as Mideast Governor. Maxwell is one of my favorite individuals in Atlasia (though we probably agree on little) and he has left big footprints to fill in every position he has held. That said, my ideological differences and Bore's superior record over POTUS mean that I cannot support them in this race, though I would not despair were they elected.

There will be a special election next week (the 23rd to 25th) to fill the two Assembly spots left open by the resignation of Representative Winfield and the banning of Representative Libertas.

Victarion walked the bridge from the Great Keep to the Sea Tower unsteadily. Though the bridge shook and rushes of water beat at his feet as the sea struck the cliffs of Pyke, he had no fear. His faith in the Drowned God sustained him. By the time he reached the entrance to the tower and the guards moved for him to pass, he took a deep breath, struggling to control his anger. He remembered the moans of his wife as he had beaten her... her pleading was lodged deep into his nightmares. But now Euron, much as he might rage against it within the recesses of his brain, was Iron King, chosen at the Kingsmoot the Damphair had called.

Euron was drinking from a silver cup, adorned in a rich black cloak and his red leather eye patch, staring from the large window that lay in the solar. Sitting across from him was Asha, a look of worry mixed with incredulation upon her face. The Damphair was nowhere to be seen; since Euron had spoken to him privately in the morning, he had departed entirely from the island fortress.

"My brother," Euron began, with a hint of amusement in his voice "I have an order to command of you."

Victarion listened to what his brother had to say, offering weak protests while Asha made biting remarks, but nothing could dissuade the madman. Yet the reward of what he promised was too great to pass up, and although the risks were great, he dare not face the wrath of his brother, at least yet.

Electorate polls!!!!!!! Tongue

http://blogs.crikey.com.au/pollbludger/2015/01/17/newspoll-51-49-to-labor-in-ashgrove/

Newspoll-

Ashgrove (LNP 5.7%)- 51-49 Labor

I'm increasingly convinced Newman will hold this. He even has a positive 51-42 approval in the electorate, although this is a small (600) sample.



Galaxy-

Barron River (LNP 9.5%): 50-50.
Cairns (LNP 8.9%): 53-47 to Labor.
Greenslopes (LNP 2.5%): 59-41 to Labor.
Mulgrave (Labor 1.1%): 61-39 to Labor.
Mundingburra (LNP 10.2%): 51-49 to Labor.
Pumicestone (LNP 12.1%): 52-48 to LNP.
Thuringowa (LNP 6.7%): 52-48 to Labor.
Townsville (LNP 4.8%): 58-42 to Labor.

Overall this tracks to about a 10% swing to Labor, with a huge 12% in the Southeast (and surprisingly) a possible wipeout for the LNP in the Far North. Obviously this will fade by the time the election happens, but still interesting.

A vote on the Recall Amendment is now open, and will end on January 21.

Quote
Recall Amendment

1.All elected Federal offices except Class B Senate seats  are subject to revocation.

However, a referendum will only be considered valid, if the the total number of voters exceeds 50% of the total electorate. Once those conditions have been met, the official's mandate shall be deemed revoked and immediate action shall be taken to fill the vacancy as provided by law.
3. Recall elections shall begin between 0000 Eastern Standard Time on the Thursday preceding the penultimate Friday of the election month and 0001 Eastern Standard Time on the penultimate Friday itself, and shall conclude exactly 72 hours after beginning, following the certification of signatures on recall petitions by the Secretary of Federal Elections.
4. The Secretary of Federal Elections shall administer all recall elections, regardless of whether or not the official in question was elected by a ballot administered or opened by the Secretary of Federal Elections.
