The Day for Stage Theatrics and Political Gimmicks
What to expect today? Intermittent drizzles, a sizeable crowd, (supporters, non supporters, prospective voters and party goers, traffic congestions and the usual waylalay, as well as hostility towards non Lorne supporters, which the Choiseul supporters are noted for.
You will realize that maypwis will be the order of the day. You will also realize that the Labour Party has transformed (like their Choiseul campaign crew counterparts) electioneering into low-rent mass entertainment. Their message will be irrelevant and theatrics will take centre stage.
You will also notice that while Lorne is reading his speech (sorry, Bolo's speech) the crowd would seemingly be uninterested. And while a few pockets would respond emotionally there will be no wild jubilation in anticipation of a Lorne victory.
Despite the mindless predictions coming from the two recent Labour engineered polls, the opposition will will lose an additional seat or two come next elections.
The crowds attracted currently by the UWP rallies have been massive and determined. This must be a worrying phenomenon for the Labour Party.
One must not forget the ineptitude and scandals that plagued at least two of the former Government ministries......Rambally's and Finistierre's.
The next general elections will tell us whether we as Choiseulians will endeavour to take the path of continued progress,or choose the path of regression and continued deception.
