First, she was with the Left Socialists. Then just leftist-ish. Then, she joined the Social Democrats. Now, Karen Jespersen has left the Social Democrats quoting irreconcilable differences with regard to immigration policies.
The question is: Will Jespersen – and her husband Ralf Pittelkow – be joining the Danish People’s Party any time soon? Her departure from the Social Democrats was made public the same day Pittelkow dismissed the centre-left’s chances of winning the next election
Update: The Social Democratic party secretary Henrik Dam Kristensen has said that Jespersen actually left the party in October and adds caustically:
She probably didn’t feel that she got enough media exposure back then.
Politicians in love. Kristensen also notes the possibility of Jespersen joining the Danish People’s Party, by the way.
