Looks like Marlin as a "Last Hurrah" is still causing problems to slow recovery down.

Sarah said that she would fight elections being held. Will the public demand that Marlin and his government just resign? What will happen to the Dutch aid if elections are actually called??? I'm afraid this BS by Marlin will still prevent the Dutch from sending aid.

Good question. Among other things, Governor Holiday may earn his pay today.

I am hoping the Governor can recognize the vote of no confidence at the 2 pm meeting and somehow have it control what happens next - as in recognize new government. As opposed to Marlin and his allies dissolving Parliament and calling elections "first" and then stay in power through elections. I expect nothing from Marlin except effort to hold onto power as long as possible. I think Governor will do what he can but I am not sure what he can do. This could really get ugly if Sarah was really serious about what she said in her press conference.

That's what I was thinking. I think people will not need much encouragement to take to the streets, in a bad way.
