The British House of Commons is too big

Having already made a few predictions last year about the British general election, now we have a date for it, I’d like to make some supplementary predictions. And there’s another aspect of this election that interests me: the size of the House of Commons, given the size of the country.

Queensland Libs do well – disaster elsewhere

The Albanese government will enjoy a second general election win in May next year. Dutton can afford to lose this election, but he can’t afford to lose again in May 2028. And here’s why I say this.

Labor will win Dunkley

I’ll be proved right on my call that Labor will win this Federal seat.

Could British & Scottish PMs learn from Anthony Albanese?

I’ve written before about how the machines of big political parties in Australia and New Zealand design electoral systems to make life as convenient for themselves as possible. With a big test for PM Sunak and PM Yousaf ahead, maybe there’s something to learn from down under?

Victoria’s democracy mess continues

My article today is about whether Victoria’s politicians wish to continue with the present reputation of being the worst democracy in the country.

Dutton’s Voice ploy kicks own goal

Dutton will win the referendum, but it will do him no good in the eyes of the history books.

Conservatives retain banished Boris Johnson’s old Commons Seat

Our election expert Malcolm Mackerras looks at by-elections here and in the UK to assess the current ‘popularity’ of conservatives in both countries.

New Zealand will change its Government in October

On my prediction, former very successful businessman Christopher Luxon will be New Zealand’s new prime minister.
