Today is election day in Denmark (my vote was cast last week, as I went through surgery earlier today) - it is the first election since the financial crisis, and this time it is more intense than ever: will we keep the current primeminister (right wing) or will we get the first female prime minister (left wing)? I won't discuss politics in this post, nor will I reveal who got my vote.
This guy caused a lot of laughter on September 21st, 1994, when he got elected for parliament - mainly due to a lot of people either being fed up with the politicians back then or a signal to the other politicians to get more serious. His primary campaign pledge was: tailwind to the cyclists (bicycle) :o) By the way, his name is Jacob Haugaard and he is a comedian.
I believe that casting a vote is not only a citizen right - it is a duty even though you might not agree with any of the politicians, hence the possibity to cast a blank vote.
