Today marks the first anniversary of the OBA’s elevation to power through the close election of 2012.
I thought there was a very good chance of the election resulting in a hung parliament with at least one Independent (Kim Swan most likely), so I was surprised (as, I think, was the OBA!) when I sat in the Beach Bar (right across from my polling station) after the counts in my own polling station had concluded.
The RG wrote to me last week asking if I’d be willing to answer some questions about the OBA’s year in power.
Some of it is included in today’s paper, but I thought it would be worthwhile, for the sake of context, to provide my answers in full here.
