Yes, Snout could bring the Dutch community so much! For example, he would ban the Free Record Shop Smile Wouldn't he?

Well, almost every party was happy yesterday. Even the LPF while loosing most of their votes.....

For a few moments, I thought we were going to have this CDA/VVD/ChristenUnie combination, but they just didn't get enough votes to have a majority...

So, erhm......Probably we'll get a CDA/PvdA government. Could be an interesting one. I do hope CDA will learn the PvdA how to deal with social economical health. Those PvdA proposals are imho very bad for the Dutch economy.

PvdA could learn CDA something on moral issues though. Such as Abortion, Euthanasia etc. etc.

Whatever.....

I don't think so.

I think it will be CDA/VVD/(D66/LPF).

On the one hand, you can say the voters have chosen and made PvdA big again.

But at the same time, you can say the voters have not moved away from the CDA and VVD ruling parties (even rewarded them!) clearly indicating they want the current government to continue (albeit with far less LPF influence, who got their buts kicked, but still got surprisingly high votes IMO).

If you look at the number of voters voting left-wing and the number of voters on the right-wing and take into account the difficulties with forming a government between a left and right wing party without a 'glue' party (like the D66 in 'Paars), I think the choice is really clear.

The majority still voted for the current government, not PvdA!
