Free and Fair?

The poll results from Zimbabwe will be coming in, as Aeres has kindly pointed out to me in the comments below, by Monday. Thanks to Tom Watson MP for drawing attention to the Sokwanele Civic Action Support Group site, which brings together pro-democratic supporters from across the political spectrum in that benighted country.

The site's front page is a mixture of hope and despair, with contemporary accounts of what has happened as people have turned up at polling stations to try and overthrow Mugabe's tyranny. Check out the interactive map too, which shows just what a formidable task the divided opposition have in turning out the old dictator - Zanu-PF have a whole raft of dirty tricks at their disposal.
