Good piece from Andrew Coates. You’d hardly know that there were elections in Holland right now, such is the wall-to-wall coverage of every nuance of the American election that dominates so much international political reporting. The left are doing rather well in the Dutch elections, but as Andrew points out, to listen to some commentators and politicians of the centre-left we should be more interested in Barack Obama’s election strategy (a president who in many respects is just as right-wing as the Tory government) than what a serious socialist party is doing on our doorstep. A very, very big mistake. But also a quite deliberate one on the part of the people making it.
