There is a guy here, very modern, bit of a clothes horse, on trend with everything with selfies to prove it!. He once said to me, I can live without my dad, I can live without my wife, but I can never live without my country. Seems his friends are equally patriotic. I was surprised to see his Facebook page picture turn to evet in the Turkish flag. For some reason I thought his vote would be no.  Politics 'eh.

   The countries Supreme Election Board has just announced that papers that do NOT bear the official seal will be deemed

   to be VALID and counted.   I wonder how many of those there are.       :( :(

Don't think there's enough uncounted votes left to make a significant difference, although would be happy to be proved wrong.

Yes vote currently standing at 51.34% with almost 98% of votes counted.

Not the overwhelming mandate the wee fella wanted, but enough to create his sultanate.

Been a few scuffles in Istanbul and Taksim now sealed off.
