Democracy in action 23:28 - May 9 with 629 viewsClapham_Junction

Just seen the news that opposition has won the general elections in Malaysia for the first time since independence. Not a country I'd have expected to see that happen in anytime soon. The BBC had an article a few days ago about how people weren't even bothering to register to vote as they assumed it wouldn't make a difference.

And this comes shortly after the Armenians ousting their long-time leader (I have a few Armenian friends from uni and they are very chuffed).

Wonder whether we'll get any other surprises this year – Zimbabwe???

Democracy in action on 07:49 - May 10 with 495 viewsGeoffSentence

Funny thing is i have read several articles about the retreat of democracy. Yet these results, and the first peaceful transfer of power in Gambia after a free and fair election recently, shows that all is not lost.

In the 38 games in which ALB played in goal for us, we averaged 1.53 points per game which, had they been over the course of a single season, would have seen us challenging for the play offs. This at a time when we were otherwise struggling against relegation. Oh, and didn't Mick Mills have terrific posture.
