Just posted an article at Bits- its about the rather amazing news about the French election. According to post election polling, Sarkozy the rightwing victor lost every age group save the retired. Amongst those over 65 he won 75% of the vote whilst winning somewhere in the forties in every other demographic. Its interesting- I'm not sure maybe Vino could enlighten me but this might be the first election decided in this manner- ie where simply winning the pensioners has won you the election. I've pontificated about some of the implications- but it is a fascinating statistic.
