In April Blog 7 will be a blog about politics. However we are not going to announce this yet out of respect for the Pope.

I must say the delaying of the election date announcement (not the actual date of course) is most puzzling. Is it something the Pope would have wanted? I suppose we would have to look at his own commitment to democracy, being the product of a constituency of a billion, leader voted for by about one hundred exclusively male and old. What this respect really means is that they want to hit the front pages of the newspapers. Which is in itself unlikely considering that every vaguely connected person in the world (my route is via Boyler) knows it will be the 5th of May to coincide with the local elections and Poptimism.

So let the posting and the voting commence. In April Blog 7 is a blog about politics.
