Did I not say we should have extended the voting last week by a day and, perhaps, give people a holiday? (No, wait, that is a bad idea as it would not encourage anyone to vote.) The Egyptians did it and what happened? Turn-out went up to 44.4 per cent and still former General, soon to be President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi is dissatisfied. Apparently he wanted 80 per cent of the vote. Not 99.8 per cent, which would be the required minimum in some countries but what would he think about the turn-out in various EU member states? Pathetic, that is what he would think, I am sure.
Anyway, regardless of all that, soon to be President Sisi is heading for a landslide victory of either 91.8 per cent or 93.4 per cent.
