Elections

Tomorrow it's election time. I fear the worst. After last week's murder of Fortuyn, his party is threatening to become even bigger than anticipated. In the last poll, they were second. In the meantime, they have shown that they are not worth of any votes. Since Wednesday, there have been at least four self-proclaimed leaders of the party, fighting over the power. Some of them have done some interviews that make you fear the very worst. One compared the minister of health with Bin Laden, as 'more people have died on the waiting list than through the terrorist'. Others accused the left of creating a climate in which murder was inevitable. They fell just short of accusing the leaders of the two main left wing parties directly of the murder. A well-known lawyer is investigating the possibility of a courtcase against the Prime Minister, some other politicians, some journalists and a newspaper. By criticising Fortuyn they were part of the conspiracy or something like that. It has gotten out of hand big time. Let's just hope that tomorrow common sense will prevail.

I'm still undecided what to vote myself. Doubting between principles and practical politics. Both left wing offcourse. I'll probably decide at the spot. I'll continue my decade old tradition of voting for a woman though. With more women in power, the world would look much nicer.
