Canada and Portugal

The Canadian Parliamentary Elections are tomorrow and it looks like the Tories are going to be the largest party, possibly with an overall majority.

I think there's a very important lesson to learn here. Corruption doesn't pay. You get caught and not only do you lose your seat, but so do a number of your friends. While you may be the only one in jail, they're going to fade into obscurity. You've got notoriety.

So, before you take that bribe, think of your friends.

Portugal is taking place today. It looks like Silva will win without the need for a run-off. Another victory for Social Democrats!

"Corruption doesn't pay."

You say that, but it doesn't seem to have the Republicans in the US much, does it?
