    Poland election

    Second round in two weeks. The PiSser has 45.2% on the first round, but polling suggests he and Trzaskowski (current mayor of Warsaw) are neck and neck for the second round. Media is in Duda's pocket, but we can but hope.

    The Polish electoral website has excellent data on the results from abroad - both Ireland and the UK had Duda in third, behind both Trzaskowski and Holownia, and each country represented about 10% of the diaspora vote, though more British Pole results will be transmitted later.

      The exit polls had Duda at 41.2 percent, only to see him reach 48+ as results came in before falling back a bit.

      All of which is testimony to the profound regional differences at work.

      It isn't going to be easy. Expect PiS to announce a new round of handouts for their supporters.

            Ironically, such is the tightness of current polling, that Duda could finish ahead in Poland itself, and yet be defeated through the diaspora vote, which is soundly pro-Trzaskowski.

                  Still confident the diaspora will swing it for Trzaskowski.

                      Is this the first time in recorded history that the board is, by and large, backing a centre-right candidate in an election?

                              Heh. I thought someone would say US Presidential elections but, yup, some of the recent French ones would qualify.

                                  Shame that when the British electorate faced a choice between a far -right anti-democratic populist and a social democratic candidate the centre right supporters in the board didn’t offer the sane solidarity.

                                        sadly the news is not as good as the typo

                                        fascism and intolerance look to be succeeding
