Election Date Whisper

Rumour around the traps is that a number of primary schools have been booked out for the 22nd of August 1998.

Now we all know where polling booths for elections are usually located. Yes, at schools.

Whether this is just a coincidence, we’ll just have to wait and see. Maybe the Wik deal might have saved us as based on the latest opinion polls John Howard wouldn’t be too keen to go to the people just at the minute. Then again if the economy continues to deteriorate as a result of Asia’s woes maybe the 22nd of August 1998 wouldn’t be such a bad date.
