'Democracy is the right of the village idiot to have his say", Lenin apparently said.
On a completely unrelated note, the CLUAS writers (including self) have voted on the best albums of 2010 and the CLUAS gaffer (more of a Stalin man) has just returned the results: www.cluas.com/poll/2010/best-albums-writers.asp
All reactions, fuming and cheering below. For my part:
Yay - Villagers didn't top the poll: a seriously overrated album - definitely not best Irish album of the year.
Nay - No sign of Owen Pallett ('Heartland' released way back in January 2010) or Darwin Deez (pure pop pleasure). And the Arcade Fire album was fairly boring.
