Mugabe and the European Union

It seems, according to this story, that Robert Mugabe has learned extremely well from the EU. Meaning, if you think you have lost a popular vote, such as a referendum on Maastricht, the Euro or the EU Constitution don't worry, just have another vote and the plebs will get it right second time around.

In this case Mugabe is hoping to have a re-run of the presidential election if he loses. Will the EU have the audacity to criticise him if he does?

Which reminds me of the old joke, that spelling Mugabe backwards reveals his Lancastrian ancestry.
