Today, Danish media brought a joyous message for Lars Løkke Rasmussen: He is suddenly astonishingly popular, the Liberals have gained support and the government supported by the Danish People’s Party has a projected majority over the Social Democrats and their allies.1
Does this ring a bell? An old party leader is quietly (well, relatively quietly) replaced, the new suddenly gets very popular and there is a spike in support for the party.
Ah, yes: The Conservatives and Lene Espersen.
Journalists have short memories.
