There's a lot of this election signage going around, outside of train stations, on fences and railings, across bridges. I find it fascinating, to follow the vibe of the election, what the parties are saying, and might be thinking.
I track how the passers-by have clearly interacted with the signs. Right-wing party candidates are far more likely to have their signs vandalized, I've noticed. Defacing the right-wing, anti-immigration Danish People's Party's placards and posters is actually somewhat of an art form, which I will eventually have my camera with me to photograph examples of. Actually, I could create a post just to talk about all the ways in which this party and its values are distasteful. And probably will.
I enjoy how the far left and far right tend to wrap around and meet each other on the other side. For example, the Danish People's Party and far-left Enhedslisten united in their rejection of the European Union.
I savor the headlines after debates between the two candidates for prime-minister, extolling all the errors and possible errors which each candidate made. The tabloids make it very clear, 'Fogh lied!', 'Thorning-Schmidt lied!' Eventually, I hope to make time to watch the debates myself, but for now, the spin is so much more fun.
I find out what the nine major parties are about, and then pontificate about them. Will Asmaa Abdol-Hamid's candidacy split Enhedslisten? Who will the New Alliance party give support to? Why did Helle Thorning-Schmidt ever think she could make an alliance with the Conservative Party?
In short, this election is exciting and interesting to me. It would all be so much more meaningful though, if I had the right to vote.
