Returning to normal?

If the latest election results are any measure, The Netherlands may be past at least one peak in political madness. In this week’s local elections, the ugly coalition of conventional right-wingers and christian-democrats lost lots of support, as did many of the right-wing local ‘Leefbaar’ parties that had come to power over the past years. Clear winners were the socialists, as well as the British-Labour-Party-like fake socialists.

For the current government-by-fear trend to continue, this country will need a major terrorist attack in the next year.
