US Elections

Well, it has taken a while, but maybe now the world is going to head a little further towards sanity, with George Bush burnt by the US voters. Admittedly, swapping Republicans for Democrats is not exactly a sea change, any more than swapping National for Labour is in New Zealand but, for all that, some of us will sleep a bit safer tonight. Nevertheless, despite the joy, the political situation in the States is still just as porous and unstable as the paper I chose to write on for this piece, and the Americans are just as fickle as my lettering, which flits between different alphabetical imperatives. But even if there are plenty of possible political paradoxes ahead, at least one has to hand it to those American voters for finally coming to their senses.
