I think Dutch public radio is overestimating the importance of elections. It is like the rest of world stands still. There is no other news available. It was all just too much for me.
On the evening of election day the news station is not worth listening to. I could not care less about the vote count from each and every small town.
As the evening progresses, the radio broadcasts predictions. Now those predictions can't bother me either. I actually just want to know the final results. Please bring me those results at the end of the evening. It should not last any longer than a minute or two.
When the results are just about final, it is party time at all political parties. It seems irrelevant which party gains or looses seats in parliament. Just about everybody seems to have won the elections. I even heart the loosing prime minister proclaiming winning gold. Now that was a fine moment to switch off the radio. I'll hear the final results tomorrow.
|Government party||Recent government party|
So, those who wish absolute poser, best leave power to other political parties. Stay in opposition, whatever happens, until there is no other party running for government. Even when there is no other party left, stay in opposition. Because power evaporates quickly!
When the power avoiders gain absolute power, it will be the end of political campaigns. Will I be saved from all the political chit chat? Will the news station broadcast news?
Till next nut,
