Wow, Germany beat Spain somehow. Is the first time this has ever happened?

Germany's last win against Spain was in August 2000, 4-1 in a friendly.

Germany's last competitive victory over Spain was at Euro 88 (as West Germany, in West Germany), 2-0 in the group stage.

Against Germany/West Germany, Spain's record is W7, D6, L9.
Against East Germany, it's W0, D2, L1.

Out of curiosity, have there been any sub-Saharan African posters on Atlas?  I've seen a couple Chinese and South American posters, so I was curious if there are any known African ones.

As patrick said, I'm Irish but I've been living in Lilongwe for a bit over 4 years now.
Pretty sure I've been the lone poster based on the continent for almost all of that time.

8 Western Sahara
7 Cameroon
6 Malawi
6 Algeria
5 Kenya
5 Sao Tome and Principe
5 South Africa
3 Mauritius
2 Botswana
1 Sierra Leone

Western Sahara, Cameroon, and Malawi are eliminated this round, and Algeria is pre-eliminated next round.

I'd like to appeal the result of Round 13.
The count is incorrect. it looks like 2 votes were incorrectly assigned to Malawi instead of Mauritius.

Malawi wasn't 3rd - it was 8th.

Counting the votes gives:
8 Western Sahara
7 Cameroon
6 Algeria

5 Mauritius
5 São Tomé and Príncipe
5 Kenya
5 South Africa
4 Malawi
2 Botswana
1 Sierra Leone

2) at 70 he is rather old. Two of five Zambian Presidents have now died in office of natural causes and I think the major parties will go for someone younger,

I don't think this is as much an issue as you might think.
A 70 year old would still be younger than most of his southern African colleagues.

Quote from: The Daily Telegraph
Mr Lungu confirmed Mr Scott's appointment on Wednesday: "Dr Scott will act as president of the Republic of Zambia until the country goes for a presidential by election".

Under a clause in the constitution which dictates that only those whose parents were born in Zambia can be president, Mr Scott's promotion is expected to last no longer than 90 days. "I won't run for the presidency at the election because constitutionally, I can't," he said.

MORI poll on Britain's EU membership:

"If there were a referendum now on whether Britain should stay in or get out of the European Union, how would you vote?"

Stay in: 56%
Get out: 36%

I suspect the large margin is a bit of a fluke, but still this is encouraging.

Probably not a fluke - their poll from May had much the same result 54-37.

Their numbers are quite different from the other pollsters though - nobody else has had 'In' above, or even near to, 50%.

Turned them off many years ago, around the same time I abandoned signatures.

To a certain extent the national flags have replaced the avatars in my mind in their association with certain posters.

I suppose it would be a bit of a bugger for the town's football club (who play in the Scottish system), mind.

Shouldn't be insurmountable though...
