(Said in reaction to predictions that in the national elections, the SP will increase their seats from 5 to 6 )

Mummy Dearest : I can’t believe that there are still so many people around who have chewed one mushroom too many.

Last night, The Father and I watched the returns from the local elections. I was sitting on my couch in my comfy Lanz nightgown, when Ted unexpectedly turned up. He came to get The Father’s Risk game, which he is going to be photographing for an article in a math magazine. While he said he was only stopping for a moment, he ended up staying for an hour watching the election returns with us.

The Father and I didn’t vote. Even though I waded through a pile of literature, I really couldn’t see any differences in any of the platforms : they all said they would increase sports facilities and keep our area ‘green’.

The effect Leefbaar Nederland and Pim Fortuyn are having on Dutch politics is phenomenal , and we expect the national elections to be one of the most interesting in years. In fact, we are going to make an evening of it, complete with beer, wine and peanuts. Toed expects it to be more exciting than the Champions League finals.

How will I vote ? Probably VVD. I always vote for my own interests.
