    Finally, the numbers are out.

    After first round, the vote tally was:

    London 22
    Paris 21
    Madrid 20
    New York 19
    Moscow 15

    After second round it was:

    London 27
    Paris 25
    Madrid 32
    New York 16

    After third round it was:

    London 39
    Paris 33
    Madrid 32

    And after last round:

    London 54
    Paris 50

    It's pretty clear that almost all of Moscow's votes went to Madrid, which suggests that the anti-rich countries camp was originally supporting Moscow and then switched to the poorest country left.

    Over two thirds of New York's vote went to London, which should dispel any notion that America doesn't consider Britain to be its chief ally. It also shows that there is some solidarity between the Anglo-Saxon countries.

    Madrid's vote was split 19-15 in favor of France, which further reaffirms my suspicion that the less developed parts of the world went from supporting Moscow to Madrid, and then threw their lot in with their colonial masters, which is why the vote was split.

    You may now return to your regularly scheduled programs. :beer:

    The second most idiotic statement of the day...the competition was intensive but Vienna just did enough with the now famous ''socialist terrorist appeasers''.

    Now all we need is a candidate for the bronze medal...any offers?

    When did you become an expert on idiocy? That's a rhetorical question by the way.

    I take that to mean that you couldn't read before then? I feel honored.
    It was more of a case of to gain greater knowledge one needs to listen to every arguement however stupid, ignorant and downright moronic they might seem.

    So ye you should feel honoured.

    Those were just poems I created, and deleted once I realized they were crap. The posts Alexdel allegedly quoted were never written. War is peace, Freedom is slavery, Ignorance is strength.

    You have a wild imagination talking about a conversation that never took place as if it was fact. Have some soma.

    Tut, tut - someone doesn't know the party's system very well....'freedom station'? I think you mean Minitrue (Ministry of Truth), Minipax (Ministry of Peace) etc. Then again, maybe I shouldn't be giving this information out to a lowly commoner...hmmmm....


    They'll both be part of Oceania after the next war.

    Sorry, Eurasia and Eastasia have already done with Oceania
