Analysis: Budgeting for electoral reform?

During the 17-hour cabinet meeting on the 2015-2016 state budget that started Wednesday at 11:20 a.m. and ended Thursday at 4:30 a.m., the ministers had a lot of time to think.

They could think about the funding with which they were officially being provided by Thursday morning’s vote and their ideas for how to spend it. They could also ponder how little time they are likely to remain in office, and what they could do to try to leave behind a footprint, let alone a legacy.

If they were thinking back about the events of the last few months, they could recall the one campaign speech that could have changed everything, had it been translated into policy.
