    I read some time ago that the Danish peoples party were set to become the biggest party after the elections. I wonder if this will mean that while everyone talks about Greece or the United Kingdom leaving the EU , Denmark will beat everyone to it (or indeed France)

    No that is the Social Democrats. They might (god I hope not) become the biggest party on the right... still 49% of the votes to be counted and the gab is getting smaller.

    Well lets see. I am ashamed of my country that so many people have voted for those nationalist racist pigs, but just because they become the largest party on the right does not mean that the people on the right will work with them. There is a lot of political angling going on tonight and tomorrow. Lets put it this way, no one on the left want the Peoples Party in government and the right side parties are not exactly thrilled either.

    And the reality here is that many of the new votes going to the Peoples Party are more likely protest votes against the Ventres (The Liberal Party) leader and former Prime Minster. He is an ass, a drunk and frankly he and his cronies have ruined the party. We shall see.

    What's the possibility of Venstre and the Social Democrats working together to prevent the DPP from being apart of government?
    Social democrat is no longer an accurate description of my views.

    Hmm always a possibility. While it has never happened in recent memory it is always possible. I would suspect more that some of the smaller parties on the right, might be able to be moved.. would not take much. The Liberal Alliance could do it.

    It all really depends on what kind of deal Venstre and the Peoples Party figure out.

    There will be 2 main sticking points as I see it. 1.) EU. Venstre is pro, Peoples Party is against. 2.) Immigration.. Venstre is for tighting an already nutso system but in no way are they willing to go as far as the Peoples Party wants.. which is basically to kick all non Christians and whites out of the country.

    Now remember, it is not only Venstre and the Peoples Party you have to get into line with.. it is also the old Conservative Party and the new Liberal Alliance. So there will be a lot of compromising going as usual. One might mean that even though the Peoples Party will be the biggest party, the requirement for any cooperation will be that the Venstre leader becomes Prime Minister.

    Oh and as it looks now.. the majority will be razor thin. You need 90 mandates to have a majority.. the blue block aka right.. will have 90 to 92.

    But we should know the final result in about 30 min or so I guess. One thing we Danes are good at, and that is holding elections. 85.8% turnout.. that at least can make me proud

    Re: Danish Election 2015- How would you vote?

    Results are in..,... need 90 seats to have a majority.

    Biggest party is the Social Democrats with 47 seats.

    Biggest party on the right is the Peoples Party with 37 seats.

    The Red block (Left) have about 85 seats.
    The Blue block (right) have about 90 seats.

    North Atlantic seats still to be given out I suspect, but usually they lean mostly read with 1 or 2 going to the blue block.

    The present Prime Minister is stepping down as party leader of the Social Democrats according to reports.. and of course the post of Prime Minister.

    The horse trading for who gets what and how has begun behind the scenes, where as the main people are getting drunk.

    Looking at the areas of Denmark who voted what is kinda interesting. The south of Jutland went racist. The west of Jutland remained loyal to their farmer roots aka Venstre. Northern Jutland stayed red, as did Fyn. Western Zealand also went racist and the rest of Zealand went mostly red, with the exception of the traditional rich area north of Copenhagen.. aka the Whiskey Belt.

    At least it did not go down to the Faroe islands mandates.. that would have been interesting.. nationalist who want independence.

    This is a disaster for Denmark on so many levels. Best to hope for now, is that the Peoples Party dont get into government but stay as a backing party like they did before. Worst case, they get into government and being black, jewish and muslim will suddenly become a crime.

    Final result in

    Red block 89 mandates/seats
    Blue block 90 mandates/seats.

    All it takes now is one person saying "hell no" and switching sides and everything goes tits up. Would not be the first time it has happened.

    That is how I though it worked, turns out it is much more convoluted.
