Political prediction in predictive text?

Yesterday I sent a friend a text to alert them to this post on Gothca in which Bill English gets the better of David Cunliffe.

Predictive texting gives my phone a mind of its own so that it “corrects” words it doesn’t recognise. When I typed Cunliffe my phone replaced it with dislodge.

Could that be a Freudian slip or is the predictive text also making a political prediction about Cunliffe’s ambition to dislodge his leader?

    Predictive text and prophetic words? Perhaps that’s another question to ask Trevor Mallard tonight.

    You probably got lucky with that interpretation.
