Clarification From My Betters

Let me get this straight. 30,000 people joining a Facebook page is a joke, worthy of derision, but a government elected by just 22% of the voters of a country is supposed to be taken seriously? Really? Take both seriously, or deride both, but don't pretend that one is a more valid expression of the will of the people than the other. Please.

  1. The government received 257 times as many votes as the Facebook group has members. In other news, I'll be happy to show you cases where I derided the government.

  2. So in relative terms it is more popular than a Facebook page? Big accomplishment. To me, it is meaningless as long as we insist on using a flawed electoral system (I know, you don't like it either). We may as well use cow flop bingo to choose our governments.

  3. We could'nt get a worse government from the cows
