UK Election risk, and timing change

A few news stories I suggest reading:

https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/the-u-k-snap-election-is-riskier-than-it-seems/

Put simply; there is a chance that, now there is an election and Corbyn's relationship with the voters (through the media) will change, there is a chance that this message will resonate despite his bad relationship with the media, and that he could actually win this election. (as my projections show, I doubt this)



Also a timing change; I've changed my normal "wake up" time which will impact the time I am able to make posts on this blog; I no longer have time to have a post ready for 7am. As such I'm moving to later posts.

It has come to my attention that many readers are still in high school; which is great as I purposefully write to an audience that is eager to learn. As such I will be aiming to have a post ready, every day, for these readers when they come home from school at between 3pm and 4pm eastern. It also means a new post should be ready for those working 9-5 jobs when they come home.

Day 1 UK Projection

A caution; this is a day 1 projection, meaning it is full of assumptions about how the campaign will go.

Turkish Referendum

This will be a short post; but a Referendum was held in Turkey. The short of it is that a yes vote would empower Erdogan, the President.

Official results show a victory for Yes by 51.4% to 48.6% for the No side.

The opposition is contesting the results; so it remains to be seen how this will play out.
