    The Tide Has Turned!

    Speaking as someone with a number two cut, I have to say I was delighted to hear of the defeat of Geert Wilders in the Dutch general election. At long last, this brings to an end the run of success for people with strange hairstyles.

    I think we should start a campaign to improve the appearance of Her Britannic Majesty's Foreign Secretary and make him more attractive to our Arab paymasters.

    last i read the headline figuers bandied about this morning were still an estimate based on counting some of the votes.


    when you read the estimated figures the "winning" pm will infact lost a significant number of his seats, the two party coalition gov will lose well over a third... the partner party has collapsed and wont be part of the new 3 or 4 way coalition.

    the "loosing" guy with the hair will gain more seats than the "winning" pm lost.,

    if the sitting pm cant organise a 3 or 4 way coalition with the 3rd etc parties the "loser " with the hair in no2 spot could yet be asked to form one


    clear proof that headlines depend on the bias of the writer.

    Well, if we are being serious, ALL other parties have publicly stated that they will not go into coalition with the nasty piece of work that is Wilders. There is absolutely NO chance of him getting even a sniff of power. Yes, he has increased his representation but, hopefully, he is past his peak because a little while ago he was expecting to be the largest party and he has failed to do that by a long way.

    dont quite see how coming second is failing to win by a long way

    now quite clear that the winner still has to form a 4 way coallition to get a majority....

    not really the outright win/defeat the headlines of all the mainstream press pronounce it to be.

    nope

    and im not surprised you cant see the difference between 2 lots of over paid meatheads chasing a bag of air arround and a general election fought by 10 or so political parties.

    And I'm not surprised it went over some heads, there's not much resistance in a low brow.
