Martyn “Bomber” Bradbury hosts the iPredict Elections 2011 series
iPredict Elections Ep:4 Featuring Bomber Bradbury, National MP Simon Bridges and Scoop’s Selwyn Manning debate the following:
- Prediction 1: iPredict says that Simon Bridges chance of increasing his majority in Tauranga has slipped back to 77% in the wake of the Rena disaster – other than the pristine beaches of the East Cape, what else will the Rena oil spill stick to politically?
- Prediction 2: After heavy trading, iPredict again gives ACT a 62% chance in Epsom after sentiment swung last week in favour of National’s Paul Goldsmith. With the marketforecasting a National party vote of just 46%, does Epsom become Nationals lifeline to forming a Government?
- Prediction 3: After Greece’s shock announcement this week that they will take their austerity measures to a referendum, iPredict gives a 17% probability that one country will be forced out of the Eurozone by January. Would this prompt a crisis,for New Zealand? Are Treasury’s black swans about to come home to roost for the NZ economy?
