Blimey, everyone's going election crazy.
Not only have we booted out the PM here in Thailand (although Khun Thaksin looks likely to remain something of a backseat driver), we've got Senate elections next week (with 260 people haggling for 18 seats here in the capital).
Meanwhile, in Italy Berlusconi looks to be on his way out; and in dear old Blighty, next month's potentially snoozeworthy local elections suddenly discover a sense of humour when the BNP picks a candidate who looks a bit 'ethnic'.
In this democratic spirit, please vote for me at 3am magazine's poll of the 50 least influential people in publishing.
Thank you, and I did not have sex with that woman.
