German election

With Frau Merkel's Christian Democrats winning a tiny minority, it seems the German's have had the worst possible kind of result: one where people have to sit down and scratch their heads, trying to work out what it means.

There's more from Third Avenue on the possible colours that may be found in the various coalitions.

I know it's desparately unfashionable but it's this sort of thing that leads me to argue the case for PR is not proven: for all the talk of PR being "more democratic", whatever coalition emerges, it'll be a compromise that the electorate did not vote for.
