The Danish prime minister has today called a general election that will take place on Tuesday 13th November, replacing the parliament that was elected on my 33rd birthday.

For some reason Danish people don’t seem to share the British fear of voting in the cold and the dark. 🙂

It’ll be interesting to see what the new constituencies will mean, and whether the emergence of the new party Ny Alliance will have any drastic consequences.

I cannot vote, of course. Denmark disenfranchises anybody who leaves the country for more than a couple of years unless they work for a Danish company or organisation.
