      have below average intelligence, and election results reflect this. However, that is true of a lot of places. We have Cameron and Osborne, so we certainly can't throw stones, nor can the people in Spain. The French might get a bye, but we'll wait and see on how that turns out. For that matter, look at the Pope. He's supposedly infallible!

        one prefers the places where fifty percent of the people have above average intelligence :)

        Spain had very real reasons for the election results they did themselves. It was wrong to do, of course but understandable - theres a government on whose watch economy has all but collapsed and they ask please reelect me? It´s understandable that Spaniards didnt want that. Its the second time in short order that spanish electorate decisions have shown a keen sense of propriety, although so shortsighted as to be selfdefeating.
