Dutch Elections

Posted on March 15th, 2017 at 8:24 by John Sinteur in category: News -- Write a comment

So I went a bit early to cast my vote at the local polling station. Saw a bunch of camera teams again, and a swedish radio journalist doing interviews with the people in line.

Now a couple of elections ago I walked into Geert Wilders casting his vote, and it was the same kind of media mess that time around.  I’ll watch the TV news later this morning to confirm, I didn’t bother to wait.

But after casting my vote I did walk up to a guy leaning against he back wall, so obviously part of a security force that it’s almost funny.

“So, Geert Wilders again, right? Walked into him before when voting here you know…”

Guy looks at me as if I just pissed in his breakfast..

“Look, if you’re not allowed to tell me, no worry, I understand”.

Guy raises an eyebrow but still says nothing.

“Good luck today mate, not an easy job you got” and I start walking off, but I did get a small smile out of him.

I guess next election they’ll pick a different polling station…
