Well, never mind, I'm sure winning on the same day is OK as well.

An excellent motto, and one which I fully intend to live up to.

Ooh, and it's another day, so...

same here.   There have been so many unnecessary deaths in the plague year that the death of a 99 year old I never met is not shocking.  And of course in the UK right now there is sectarian violence in Northern Ireland and a hard right, very corrupt government passing bills.

Oh right! I'm not a huge royalist myself so it didn't make a lot of difference for me: I mean it's sad for his family of course, but he was 99. With COVID we've had many more tragic and avoidable deaths in the past year honestly.

I mean, the situation with the Prince Philipp.

I like the use of the stocks :) They're one of those "underused in games" things I think, given they appear pretty often in medieval illustrations.

So the Dutch election went very well for both the centre-left liberals (D66) and the centre-right liberals (VVD) who will basically mathematically have to form the backbone of the next government. Really rare example of a smaller leftier party being in a centre-right government and actually doing well out of it. Rutte has been badly damaged by some of the scandals whereas the D66 leader Sigrid Kaag did extremely well in the election - but Rutte will probably still remain as PM given his party still have 34 seats to the D66's 24. The VVD have come top in every Dutch general election since 2010, when they took over from the CDA as the main party of the right.

We've also had the Bulgarian election, which has resulted in deadlock: the socialists, who are the remnants of the Bulgarian communists, and GERB, the main centre-right party, have been the major forces in government. GERB is still the largest party, but after a load of protests a bunch of new anti-corruption parties, a lot of them with really weird policy mixes, are now in parliament, so there's like three blocks none of which will work with the others. The Socialists and MRF, the slightly liberal ethnic minorities party, have both said they'd back the biggest of the new opposition parties to form a government, but it's not clear that said new party will work with the Socialists especially to do that.

Oh and Israel is still in electoral deadlock, which barely counts as news any more.
