Researched the IPI archives and 

a) corrected the MP returns from 0.54 to .9 per year

b) added evidence of the "actual" cost of elections from M.V. Kamath's
reporting of Seshan, of 1994

This info needs further research; if properly researched, we can prepare
a brief note on this FUNDAMENTAL flaw in the Indian system, a note which
we all agree with.

c) Added CEC, Gill's view that all campaign donations must be made open.
"Companies would make donations to politicians anyway, so it was better
to make it legal, transparent and in the public gaze, rather than drive
it underground."

d) Added the transparency of the US Presidential election system
