I have tried to come up with something interesting about the local elections here in Odense. As it is, the campaign hasn’t really started yet (we are less than a month away from the elections), but signs are that the Conservatives are in trouble while the Socialists look set to win.
The left-wing parties managed to put put their foot in the mouth (or should that be: Put their feet in their mouths?) by having LO, the Danish TUC, write their electoral platforms.
What? They only got 100.000 DKK? That’s pretty cheap, I’d say.
Otherwise we have the (indirect) choice between Boye and Boye as mayor. One Boye is Conservative and incumbent mayor, the other Boye is a Social Democrat and a former mayor. I tried DR’s election guide: It recommended that I voted for the Social Democrats. Or the Conservatives. Flip a coin.
Local politics is different.
