And The Winner Is

Last night the winner of the London mayoral elections was announced and the conservatives won. Ken Livingstone is out and Boris Johnson is in. He will be sworn into office today, none of this waiting around for a few months with a lame duck. Moving swiftly may have prevented the small mishap that occurred in Italy this week. The elections earlier this month provided an upset to the sitting government and in one of their last moves in office they published on the web all citizens tax returns for 2005. It was claimed that this was posted under freedom of information and democracy. Of course the site came crashing down as people flooded the website to find out what their neighbor or co-worker makes. The information has since been removed.
