    Not waiting around to have an election around the same time as the next Federal election early next year (wonder why?)

    "Tasmania's Liberal Premier has called a state election for May 1, days after his government's numbers plunged into a minority with the exit of outspoken Speaker Sue Hickey.

    The election — which was due to be held by May next year — will be brought forward after the state government was plunged into minority when Speaker Sue Hickey was sacked from the Tasmanian Liberals on March 21"

    No doubt Gutwein is betting on a solid win just as other state incumbents have enjoyed during the pandemic.

    Not sure it will play out as he expects given the antipathy towards conservative forces as a consequence of Scomos mishandling of all recent issues relating to women.
