Elections in Denmark
Jens Steen, a really good friend of mine since the days when I was active in SSF.
Dan Jørgensen, one of our sharper MEPs.
Jacob Bjerregaard, leader of the Danish Social Democratic Youth (DSU).
Peter Strauss, also a friend from DSU.
Kristian Madsen, previous president of DSU.
But unfortunately it seems like sharp and cool Trine Bramsen has closed her blog.
I am of course hoping that Helle Thorning Schmidt, leader of the Social Democrats, will become new prime minister. Her basic message is that welfare is more important than tax cuts and her government would not be dependent on the xenophobic Danish ”People’s Party”. Moreover, it would be great with yet another strong woman in a leading position in Nordic politics (Finland has a female President, Sweden and Iceland has women as leaders for their respective social democratic parties).
I just got a text message from my friend Jens Steen and he says that the TV-debate yesterday went well for the opposition, and that there is a new TV-debate tonight (the ”real” one that everybody watches). He thinks that the election will be really close but is far from sure that the progressive side will win. But the campaign seems to be working well.
We will see tomorrow.
