The high turnout suggests the opposition claims are true that many people 
are disaffected by the economy, and feel intimidated from expressing their 
opposition to Zanu publically.

However from England I think the main thing is to separate ourselves from 
the publicity designed to ridicule or demonise the quite reasonable demand 
of Zanu for a redistribution of the land of the white colonial farmers, who 
are producing a poisonous cash crop for export dollars.

The blame for the state of the Zimbabwean economy should lie on the global 
financial system rather than on Mugabe.

I am doubtful that a win for the MDC will really see progressive change.
