Bittersweet, and not a victory, but...

I'm delighted that the NDP in Canada look set to take over a hundred seats tonight: it's bittersweet that the multi-party system looks set to give the Conservatives a majority of the seats with perhaps under 40% of the votes.
I'd have loved to have seen a minority government, with the NDP in solid second place, and an agreement to move towards a more proportional representation system as an outcome.

Yours, enjoying being a remote political junkie,
