“Justice is the bread of the nation; it is always hungry for it.”
-François de Chateaubriand

While talk of Sarkozy winning the elections still brings tears to my eyes [oh the neocon nightmare that is about to unfold, hai], I had to restrain myself from not jumping up and down with joy when I heard this:

The Supreme Court issued a stay order for suspending the proceedings of the Supreme Judicial Council. The bench has also ordered formation of a full court bench and referred the constitutional petition of the chief justice to the full court. [The News]

I don’t really want to predict what will happen next – a state of emergency being declared, an internal coup, Shaukat Aziz being fired – the rumors and conspiracy theories are a dime a dozen and adding to the confusion will do no good. But at least, for today, let us be grateful for this small victory.

    believe it or not, but sarkozy is probably a shade better than the spineless royal.

    he’ll definitely pull france out of its stagnant economic state, but his take on immigration (whatever he eventually settles on) may unravel him
