This would surely come as no surprise to many of the great man's former team-mates, but still, what can this mean? Has Sir Geoffrey been stuffing ballot boxes in some Greatest Yorkshireman contest or something? And why should Al-Qaeda care about that? Has Boycott offended them too?

Alas, no, seems it's something to do with the Algerian elections. More important, perhaps, but less mysterious or intriguing.
