Ironies of ironies

From what Tim Worstall writes today, it seems the Spanish hid their own constitution in Margot Walldstom's round powder box, when she visited Spain the other week.

Tim notes; They Do Things Differently in Spain and questions the sanctity of the secret ballot, the assertion is based on what a reporter has written in the Telegraph, which is linked from his blog.

"In a Madrid polling station in the central district of La Latina, Jose Luis Gonzalez, a retired 60-year-old, picked up a "Yes" slip."

Ironies of ironies, Article 23 of the Spanish Constitution states that Spanish citizens have a right to vote in elections by universal suffrage. Universal suffrage being declared in Article 10, as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the international treaties and agreements thereon ratified by Spain.

Funny that, as the EU Constitution enshrines the ECHR (which has been ratified by spain) First Protocol article 3 which states that the High Contracting Parties undertake to hold free elections by secret ballot.
