Two big events for social democratic parties this weekend.
The first is the Queensland state election. It’s expected that Labor are going to lose – but there may be a silverlining is they can prevent opposition leader Campbell Newman from winning a seat.
The other event is the Canadian NDP leadership convention, which is underway. I haven’t been following it closely and have no idea who will prevail.
I’ll probably be live tweeting the evening – feel free to follow!
