The Bet

I just placed a bet against two friends – one is a political reporter, the other a PR man and a campaigner in the last elections – on the outcome of the political negotiations.

The campaigner said we would end up with a “national unity government” (Likud and Kadima together), with Netanyahu as PM.

I bet on a Right-Orthodox coalition, without Kadima (Netanyahu as PM).

The reporter said we are heading for a “rotation government”: Netanyahu as PM in the first two years, and Livni in the last two.

Who will drink for free?
