Quick note on the Greek elections

On the 7th of July, Greece votes on a new government. I've not been following it very much for one good reason - the winner has been obvious for years.

New Democracy, the Christian Democratic party, has a healthy lead in the polls. So strong, in fact, that when accounting for the threshold, and the Greek electoral system, they are on the cusp of a Majority. Even if it is a few seats short, it has coalition opportunities.

The good news is the NAZI-like Golden Dawn party is down in the polls and is expected to lose seats. For any more, we will need to wait for the official results.
