Mea culpa. Mea maxima culpa.

What can I say? I made a crude attempt to forecast the turnout in the Iraqi election on the basis of partial figures, here, and I got it wrong. Badly wrong. At least the key meaning - that only the Shia and Kurds would get in - got through, but then that was the easy bit.

Mind you, whoever did the second official forecast on election night, 58%, was uncannily accurate....

Whilst we're on the theme of corrections, I also misspelt Christine Deviers-Joncour yesterday.
