POLLING DAY IS MAY 7TH

Postby sundaymorningstaple » Tue, 19 Apr 2011 5:14 pm

Hey MS, you owe me a beer! :cool:

I was pretty damned close!

Try June or July. I reckon the election will be before the end of May. PAP hasn't introduced enough of the new guys so it would be a little tight for April.

I know SMS said it will be mid year period, I am weighing more towards after Aug-Nov period.
BTW there will be alot of tweaking on the immigration laws.

Is there any doubt about who'll win? :roll:

They've even re-drawn all the constituency boundaries, and showered citizens in 'rebates' (of their own money), just to ensure that everything is completely fair :) :wink:

Back here again after two and half year, and glad to see SMS still actively quipping (politically)...

Cheers! :D
