Nap time

| 2 Comments

Yesterday as I came home from work, I was feeling a bit tired. Around 18h00 I decided to take a quick nap, I woke up this morning around nine :-) I guess I needed that...

Thanks Hilda and Marianne for the comments about the previous post. Politics are always a theme that seems to get to people, and that pleases me very much. If no one cared, nothing would go right - or maybe things would go more wrong, I don't know. Some people are whining that globally seen the majority has voted "right", but as Marianne points out quite well, that's the way a democracy works. It's not because you vote left, center or right that the final outcome will be what you like it to be. Your voice is just one of many and while it is important to be heard, voicing your opinion doesn't guarantee anything.

Concerning the trouble Joco went through when voting for me : I've found an e-mail address that belongs FOD Binnenlandse Zaken, whom should be able to handle my complaint, or at least point me to where I need to be. I've mailed them a couple of minutes ago, pointing out obvious errors in the process and that I'd like it to be investigated. If I get a reply, I'll definitely let you all know. If I don't get a reply, then I guess I'll have to inform the media about it and see if that puts things into motion.

Let it be clear that I'm not attempting to make things hard on anyone, cause trouble or even am suggesting that a new election should be organized, but I am voicing my concern that if obvious errors and (not even intentional) manipulations are not being caught by the current verifications, there is no guarantee that the complete voting process is not open to organized fraud and thus undemocratic.

Update : the mail I've sent has been received by FOD Binnenlandse Zaken according to the return receipt I've requested (which doesn't prove anything though).

well, I'm curious on how long it'll take until you receive an answer :-D

I'm curious too whether you get an answer or not. I expect though that you will get an answer. The question is: how long will it take?
