A Big Thankyou to US democracy
Whatever the result, I would like to express my thanks to the US electorate and process for getting out there and voting in this important election. The turnout looks like it is going to be high and reports over here are of good participation from types of voters who often don't bother. It certainly looks as if the winner will have received a record number of votes cast.
It means that the President of the US will have strong legitimacy in his discussions with the rest of the world over what is, no doubt, a critical time for all of us.
