Call a snap election because you think you’ll win a huge majority. Be arrogant enough to not take part in the election campaign, assuming you will win a huge majority.
Avoid ‘live’ debates during this period because your advisors are aware that your inadequacies being on display for the electorate to see will seriously harm the chances of you winning that huge majority.
Suffer a humiliating battering at the ballot boxes resulting in a ‘hung parliament’ and no huge majority. Then unbelievably…..
In desperation, in order to maintain a fingertip grip on power, form a relationship with an extremist political entity, and hold a press conference where you ignore completely the events of the previous 24 hours and act as if you did actually win that fabled huge majority.
Folks, you are living in a lost George Orwell novel.
