Greg Jericho has taken a heroic effort to try and nail down when Kevin will submit to the will of the people.
With caretaker mode looming over the public service this is of more than casual interest to the people of Canberra.
The ill starred referendum question on local government recognition is certainly limiting the freedom of movement Kev might like to have. As is the return of parliament on 20 August if writs are not issued before.
Greg thinks October 19 at the earliest, but John Howard showed incumbents could win with campaigns over the top of football finals.
While I didn’t anticipate this drama I have to say I was extremely ticked off by Prime Minister Gillard acting as if the calling of the election date was entirely her prerogative (with her numbers in parliament, the electorate, and it turns out her party).
