Those crazy Filipinos!

This story - about an election in the Philippines decided by the toss of a coin - is currently featured on the front page of BBC news.

One has to wonder why - it's not like we do things too differently here! Seasoned campaigners will know well that in this country tied elections have long been decided by tossing coins, drawing lots and all manner of other random events.

In fact, only last year control of St. Albans District Council was decided by a "pick the longest pencil" contest!

Still, don't they do things funny over there?
