If you want another election, you can pay for it yourself

So, we’ve got an unstable minority government, but it’s going to be a long time before the main parties can pay for a new election.

Interesting. What I’d really like to see is a campaign run on a shoestring. Or maybe we could make this into a reality TV show? Meet Paul. He wants a bigger government, but he has no money to pay for it. But if he outlasts his rivals, Jack, Stephen, and Gilles - each of whom starts with just ten thousand dollars - in challenges such as “Spin, Spin, Spin!” and “X-TREME CANVASSING”, he could win THIRTY MILLION DOLLARS for his next campaign!
