Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The result for the Pirate Party is, well, crappy. Parliament results look similar to 2006 - about 0.6-0.7% (from exit polls).

Does not look like we will pick up any local seat either. Around 1% in strong cities (ie university towns) and about 2-3% is needed for a seat. Crap crap.

And those damn racists got into parliament, meaning that we will get stuff like burka-bans suggested by the other parties in futile attempts to steal their votes. Crap crap crap.

Gotta sleep now.

Perhaps being a liberal in a sea of right-wing nut cakes is the reason I find politics (no matter what country it seems) so unsettling these days. I would have thought the Pirate Party would have been the big winner here, based on their principle of preserving privacy protections for people, and I'm both surprised and disappointed that this wasn't the case. I was really hoping to see a forward-thinking Green-Pirate government in place. Guess I just live on the wrong planet for the time.
