It may be frustrating and at times boring but the Ukrainian 2010 Presidential parade never ceases to amaze. Ever since 2004 when Viktor Yushchenko was crowned head clown in a blaze of orange the world has look on and watched a state it its making. More exciting the formation of galaxies or the explosion of a quasar star and the birth of a black hole. Viktor Yushchenko who once held the support of 52% of the nation lost in the first round elimination parade and only managed to secure 5.45% support. A team of would be spoiler candidates stood against him making sure he would not be a final contender.
Yulia Tymoshenko, Ukraine’s Prime Minister and version of Evita “Don’t die for me Ukrainiana” versus Viktor Yanukovych, back to the future “return of the dark horse villain”.
Most Cossackwood watchers and critics have already awarded the event to the “Dark horse” who has odds less then three to one. Even the attention seeking antics of Ukraine’s own version of Evita have not managed to sway the critics to support her plea for recognition.
By this time tomorrow (8:00PM) we will know who has won. Will there be a sequel to the Orange revolution II with its theme song Dances with Wolves or will it be Road kill and squashed orange juice at the dinner on the maidan with Cossack dances jumping for joy at the rebirth of Yul Brynner’s career – Ukraine’s version of the President and I mixed with a touch of “Taras Bulba”
Already the supporters of the main performers are staking strategic positions to underpin their Viktory or protests along the cat walk. The attack of the blue berries will not be outdone by the rotten oranges as the fruit cocktail recipes are brought to market.
The only winner in this parade of circus clown is the media who have never been denied an angle or a story to write about. The beginning of the end, the start of World War III, Armageddon and Babylon all rolled into one.
Sit back relax and watch the events unfold as the sporting night of the black sky dawns. We will be bringing you the all-Ukrainian judges judgement day, virtual reality live results as they are unfolded and are published, translated and republished on our updated electronic tally board “voters map”
