By-election thoughts

To be honest, I don't have many. This particular constituency isn't one that would be considered representative of Bermuda's population as a whole, and unless one of the following happens:
  • The UBP candidate surprisingly wins
  • The UBP candidate gets slaughtered and gets say 20 votes, tops

then there's nothing to be learned about how Bermuda's voting base may lean.

Now, while both candidates are well spoken for, I've realized that it doesn't matter to most Bermudians and it's the party machine that really does count, unfortunately.

Business as usual. The Gazette has a piece about it online, with some speculation and analysis.
