Political climate becomes more poisonous

Two Dutch MP’s suggested to postpone municipal elections because they fear that voter turnout will be lower due to the rather cold weather lately. Everybody jumped on them. These social democrats know they are low in the polls, or they don’t want to get a cold nose during canvassing. But what if they genuinely feared a loter voter turnout?

A former prime minister said that the bonus culture at the ING bank was out of step with international standards. The guy was roasted. Didn’t he have a point?

Blair said that he did not trust Saddam anymore given his career of cheating and lying. The guy was roasted. Did you trust Saddam? Would you have liked him to remain in power?

Politics is like war. The truth is the first thing that dies.
