Sadly, Nagano residents barely managed to register 50% of its vote in the election yesterday, and the progressive outside candidate managing only to squeeze 20% of that total. Of course that means we now have a Governor who can boast he got less than 40% of the popular vote in the lowest turnout since 1992.

Nagano residents have only themselves to blame as we get four more years of wasteful spending, pork-barrel politics, environmental degradation, declining educational standards and inert tourist 'initiatives'.

Congratulations Matsumoto-san for running a positive, optimistic and considered candidacy. Shows though how entrenched powers are very hard to shift.

We all lost yesterday, not just you.
