Go on standby Marty Whelan. We may soon need your skills and experience in the important matter of picking a government. We need somebody with a long and impeccable track record.

Assuming a General Election on Friday, February 26, it may be too much of a stretch to see this important work featuring on the Lotto show for that Saturday night. In extremis, it might run to the following Saturday.

But we could guess a preference for a special draw sometime early in the ensuing week, once marathon and contentious election counts and re-counts were concluded. Then we would have a clearer picture of the final election result and all the right colour-coded Lotto balls could be in place.
