“All politics is national”
“Wednesday’s local elections were on the calendar long before the fall of the cabinet 10 days ago. Local elections are always seen as a barometer for national politics, this time more than ever.”
“In the wake of the cabinet’s collapse (after failing to agree about extending the Dutch mission to Afghanistan), national elections have been called for June 9. Wednesday’s municipal elections are the kick-off to what will be an intense three-month campaign.”
“Geert Wilders currently has 9 seats in the lower house of parliament (out of 150), but his party has been polling much higher for the last year. The Freedom Party could become one of the largest, if not the largest party in The Netherlands.”
WE could take a lesson from this.
ALL POLITICS IS NATIONAL
I HOPE he wins it all. Talk about hope and change...
Oh this is such good news..and I needed it! My only concern is how many muslims can and will vote opposing this..when it comes down to it they may come out in droves to stop this...it’s not exactly a done deal..numbers do count.
But for now I am elated and this looks good for his party! A little light in the darkness!
