    The polling for the election looks insane. Christian Democratic Appeal will remain the largest party, but won't even be able to come close to forming a government. PvdA also looks like they'll have a weak showing, but unlike the last election, the Socialists don't appear posed to capitalize on it. D66 will rise from near death. The Greens will likely double their seat count and the far-right Party for Freedom could do so as well.

    I have no idea. I was just going for the cheap laughs.

    But maybe someone else on here is conversant in Dutch politics.

    Basically, the Dutch system gives a seat to anyone who can gather a handful of votes together. They had a party last election that won seats that was solely devoted to animal rights.

    I think the cabinet collapsed because they didn't find the studs on center
