We’ll have an election on October 14.

What happened to the fixed-term election law?  Why pass laws that can just be ignored?  Were the Conservatives just pandering to stupid voters?  Are we really this stupid?

My understanding is that the fixed-term law was mostly a lie, the governor-general has the power to dissolve the parliament and will do so whenever asked by the PM.  With the current law, the PM can call a convenient snap election at any time, but the maximum life of a Parliament is now four years.  “Steve” passed a law that changed the maximum life of a Parliament from 5 to 4 years.  Pffff.
