It was announced yesterday on TV news that the Lion CITY would have a By-election on May 26; to “settle the score” for one of the republic’s electoral constituent. The immediate past-MP left the political post a few months ago due to sex scandal. (Lately, such cases are common among the professionals and those in high positions in Lion CITY.)
As usual, people at the coffee shop start to bet on the scores like any soccer game. Here are some of the guesses:
(1) P-Team loses (35% votes); W-Team wins (65% votes)
(2) P-Team loses (30% votes); W-Team wins (70% votes)
(3) W-Team loses (49% votes); P-Team wins (51% votes)
The variant will be about 2%. (In soccer betting terms, giving half-a-goal.)
Also based on gossip, that prime districts retail business will be affected during the campaigning period. Coffee consumption will be high though.
Good show coming….
