And my democratic power does not only reach from the UK to the Netherlands, but also the other way around; there's municipal elections coming soon, and I received my voting card! UK politics, here I come! I will have to find my way through the quite possibly sometimes slightly biased information that's available on the various political parties here, but then I can have genuine influence in this town. Bring it on!

Lust for power
Wilders is on his way! But not on my vote. Frothing at the mouth from sheer patriottism I registered as a foreign voter. It's probably going to be a mess and I'm eager to make my voice count. And as Balkenende miraculously managed to keep the government going all the time I was in Norway, this will be my first vote from abroad.
