    The only 'poll' that counts is the one on polling day.

    43 percent for the coalition , 41 percent for all the opposition . Close with 16 percent undecided . But no chance of the opposition uniting , a la Argentina , so Tabare Vazquez will be the next president . However , not bad when compared with senile incumbent .

    I think Tabare was actually pretty decent. He did not get along well with Cristina, a good sign. He fought her instead of kissing her ass like Mujica.

    What a shame. Uruguayans still thick and anxious to be argie asslickers. There's an important lesson here. In terms of area, Uruguay is bigger than England. Why has England been a force whilst Uruguay has been, and remains, a nonentity. No guts? A look at population. England has more than 53 million. Uruguay has a little more than 3 million. Forgotten what dicks are for? This is why Uruguay is a waste of space. No guts, no balls.

    Conks, is your complaint advancing or have you forgotten to take your meds? C'mon you silly old windbag, the UK has had its share or arseholes in the country's leadership! How about Wilson for starters? As for the population, you won't find any Uruguayans in Guantánamo, nor have any Uruguayans decapitated a Uruguayan soldier in the street. We threw Spanish, Portuguese, Argentine and Brazilian forces off our territory in the past. It's sad to see an old soldier such as yourself fade mentally. So undignified.

    You are correct of course but I have come to ignore him.

    Sometimes, just sometimes, he comes out with a lucid, cohesive, well thought out post. Weird.
