This http://atans1.wordpress.com/2011/08/27/divining-tonites-results/, was written on the morning of 27th August. The predictions of the various percentages went badly wrong, but the conclusions (see below) didn’t.
But first where the divination methods let me down badly. The two Drs between them only got 70% of the votes cast , not the 85% divinated. They only got between them the 35% of the electorate that will vote for any donkey, so long as it is a PAP donkey, and 35 percentage points of the sheep (swing voters who constitute 45% of the total votes). TT must have got all the donkey votes and TCB all but 10 percentage points of sheep votes.
Anyway, did get it right that it was too close to call between the two Dr Tans.
Tot that the ass vote (20% of the electorate) would be be split between TKL and TJS. TJS got all the ass votes (any ass so long as it is an Opposition ass). To great surprise, 5 percentage points of the sheep supported him. Had tot that no sheep would vote for a former SDP candidate. But then Nicole Seah supported him. Young sheep adore her.
Right in thinking that TKL would lose his deposit, but didn’t expect any sheep to vote for him. But it would seem he got his votes (5% of the total votes) from the sheep. Must be super daft sheep.
Very, very wrong in thinking that 5 percentage points of the asses would vote for Dr Tan Cheng Bock. They remained solidly in the TJS camp. Tot that not all asses were daft, was wrong.
Finally an even bigger majority, 65%, are not happy with PM, not the 50ish% predicted.
PM better wake up his his ideas. The majority of S;poreans are unhappy about the
– unjustified commuter fare rise;
– repeated failures to secure MRT carriages and depots;
– attempts to tell us how we should vote on 27 August;
– Central Mediation Centre’s and MinLaw’s refusal to tell FTs that they are guests here, not our overlords, and must tolerate our culture and eating habits; and
– continued fixing of the Opposition by the PA (a government agency of which he is the chairman).
The vast majority of S’poreans are too smart to buy into the Kin Lians and Jee Says of this world. They know when people talk rubbish.
The vast majority of S’poreans are conservatives.
Brand PAP is toxic.
