Singh - just to anger the lefties.
Impossible. We won this days ago with the elimination of Tony Blair. Everybody left after that would have been unmitigated cause for celebration, which I hereby open:

HOORAY!
Cheers to the Worker Masses of India that gave the boot to the Lotus [note for the unititiated: BJP party symbol, and common way of referring to the party among the illiterate working class populace. Congress is the Hand] when noone expected them to!
Cheers to the World's Greatest Democracy!
Cheers to the man who (hopefully) will become the first non-Brahman to serve out a full term as PM of India!

actuallt, Singh was elected as Prime Minister, Earl. Do you need a crash course into how parliamentary democracies work? Wink

I'm happy Singh won.






Can you guys believe it's over? Tongue

In future when anyone does anything like this can you all not form little mafias?
That took all the fun out for me really early on Angry

And Singh was always pretty likely to win because; a) he can hardly be thought of as a leftie (so no incentive for the righties to vote him off) b) he's not white (making it less likely for the lefties to vote him off) and c) he's the ruler of a very large country (meaning that he was never going to go to "keep it interesting").
Still... at least him winning reflects better on you all than a basically unknown leader of a more-or-less unknown country occupiying about half of a small-ish island winning... Roll Eyes

Ah, but all the little mafias formed ever-shifting little coalitions. It was just like Atlas Fantasy Elections. Smiley

No one really formed "mafias", it just so happened that on many occaisions certain groups voted for the same person, which was to be expected, it was actually like real elections, you have a core base on both sides and a few swing voters (like Al and Emsworth). The Koizumi vs. Moo-Hun round is a good example of this.

The only actual group founded was KIIC, and even that wasn't really a group rather than a basic concept (the only person who really was a member was hughento). I voted KIIC on some occaisions, but I bet most would also lump me in with the "Leftist Voting Bloc"

And if you consider there to be "mafias", the righties were actually being much worse, considering they voted off Zapatero before Schroeder, which is the equivalent of the left voting off Blair before Berlusconi.

Yes you did. Although I think you all prefered the euphamism "block voting" Roll Eyes
I suppose that "survivor" format is much more vunerable to that kind of thing than something were you vote for someone to win.

What I meant is that there was no official groups.

But when the righties were trying to vote off Chavez and the lefties went after Berlusconi, who else should I have voted for? There was no organization of "let's take out this guy", just more along the lines of "this guy has votes and I hate him too, so I'll vote for him".

The Survivor format is uniquely suited to that - in fact that's what it is *about*.

Well in some of the other survivor games people were actually canvassing support by pm and such. That happened in this game about...once. Or maybe twice, I dunno. Anyways, not after the early stages as far as I'm aware.

Well, I guess I should be reasonable pleased...Lewis, I would say that Blair getting voted off was a definite low-point of the whole thing.

I would have preferred brackets until a top-five in each were determined.

Brackets:
The Americas
Africa
Europe + Turkey, Israel, Jordan, Leb, Syria...maybe more, like the Caucuses
Asia + Oceania

Europe and Syria in the same brackets. Never! Your proposal is reasonable and should be considered next time, but I can see why countries like Syria and Lebanon should be in same bracet with Europe. Turkey and Caucasus maybe and Israel definitely. Australia and New Zeland could be in European bracket because of culture. In UN Israel, Australia, New Zeland and Canada are in the European "bracket". (US is not, because it's the permanent member of security council.)

Kangaroos.

We are not a colony, we are an independent Commonwealth. Unlike America, however, we prefferred to vote towards independence, and give the people a choice, rather then shooting each other. We have only two legal ties to Britain in any way; 1. The Queen is our common Head of State, but she is Queen of Australia, not Queen of England and possessions, in her role as our Queen, and 2. The Constitution of the Commonwealth of Australia Act, 1900, UK; basically the original constitution was an act of British parliament, but they can't amend it or anything like that.
