Yeah, either scenario would be valid. But playing on words should be avoided by politicians who want to be taken seriously as politicians. Say what you mean and mean what you say.But note the way the greens worded the statement - "we believe it is time to fix the date for a General Election in the second half of January 2011" could mean either (a) that they wanted an election in the second half of the coming January, or (b) they wanted FF in the second half of January to fix a date. If you take (b) as the interpretation FF only has to announce sometime in the latter half of next month any date they want in the next 2 years for a GE and the greens would say they were satisfied.
But that's just my naive side speaking.
