Two Australian states – South Australia and Tasmania – will be having State Elections on the Ides of March (i.e., the 15th of March for those who haven’t studied history), and in both states, it’s been widely tipped that the Australian Labor (sic) Party will lose Government to the Liberal Party. And regardless of who I decide to vote for in a week from now, my gut feelings tell me that the “It’s Time” factor will come into play, and South Australia will indeed have a new Premier – Liberal leader Steven Marshall – in a decisive victory. Not quite the landslide that some may be expecting, mind you, but a win nonetheless.
That said, here’s the ballsy promise (and in more ways than one, as you’ll soon see): if Jay Weatherill’s incumbent ALP State Government somehow defies the odds, and is indeed returned to power next week, I’ll go up to Waterworld at Ridgehaven on the following Sunday afternoon and go swimming in one of my G-strings.
Of course, I’d also take one of my pairs of board shorts, just in case anyone might be inclined to complain about it, and given my heavy build, the chances of such complaints would be quite great. But having already checked the Tea Tree Gully Council’s Waterworld page, I didn’t see any specific rules precluding the wearing of G-string swimwear, and I didn’t spot anything barring lovely ladies from going topless either (heh heh). And you need not worry about it anyhow, viewers, because in all the time I’ve been on the electoral roll, I’ve yet to make a wrong election prediction.
