Feudal System Ends



For those who, like me, didn't know it still existed, you may be interested in the following charts. Today, for the first time in 450 years, the inhabitants of the island of Sark in the Channel Islands will vote for their first democratic government.

By following this link http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/guernsey/7774140.stm you will find some interesting information about the island and how it was ruled. Sark is famous for allowing no motor vehicles except tractors, even the Fire Service is powered by tractor.

About 600 people live on Sark and there are 28 parliamentary seats available and there have been 56 nominations.

So, this little piece of political history is found in the following charts for the opening and closing of the polls - I'm showing both for those who like one or the other in these matters.



The Moon's application by trine to Saturn perfects just before the close of polls. Do we think Saturn will win? Plus ca change?
