Things I am not surprised to see

After all the excitement earlier in the week surrounding FIFA, the re-election of Sepp Blatter was probably the least surprising thing about the whole affair. Of course this has lead to a number of "how could this possibly happen" in the media, but anyone who has attended the last few FIDE elections (as I have), would know how these things in fact work. Although the articles are about football rather than chess, they have a familiar ring about them, right down to which continents get blamed.
