Scotland, Fiji and now Aotearoa New Zealand. The people have spoken. Decisively, unexpectedly (on some prior polls and prognostications) and, especially in NZ's recent outbreak of lunacies, sensibly.
It is wonderful that each country is testimony to the capacity of the ballot box to convey the voice of the people, each one counting equally, with peace and in peace. No bullets, no beheadings.
I feel a great joy within me at the power of democracy.
Incidentally, without explanation and with no offence to the people of Scotland or New Zealand, the greatest result of this week is the outcome of the Fijian election.
