Democracy - such a difficult concept

At least it would seem to be to George Papandreou, (very much related) head of Pasok, and holder of degrees from Amherst and the LSE.

Anyway, the Hellenic demos vote today, and it look as though the good guys are going to win, and Pasok does not like that at all:

"No democrat, no progressive person, no Socialist, no leftist can surrender the fate of the country to the Right". (My emphasis)

On the subject of General Elections, it's been confirmed that our one here in Gibraltar is on 11th October.

As we all dabble in items of random overseas interest I thought you might like to keep an eye on us, or alternatively I could write something short from here for you to consider posting?

Geoff,

If you would like to write a piece on how things are shaking down in Gib, I would be delighted to put up a guest post in your name. Thank you for offering.

Well, it looks like the good people of Greece have, in their wisdom, ignored Mr Papandreou's warnings of doom.

The good guys may scrape back in, though the numbers are still coming in. But Papandreou's PASOK certainly won't.
