Hope Lies In The Proles

Remembering "a small-framed, dapper man with an intense gaze and an air of surprising calm," good news this way comes, from Iraq:

All the Islamic parties lost ground, especially that associated with the so-called "Shia firebrand", Moqtada al-Sadr, whose share of the vote went down from 11% to 3%. The principal Sunni Islamic party, the Islamic Party of Iraq, was wiped out.The only Islamic party to gain ground was the Dawa party of the Shia prime minister Nouri al-Maliki - and even that party dropped the word Islamic from its name.

Acknowledgements to Peter, who notices: "The response from the catastrophists? All is silence."
