The civic will end up in a tree

This week saw yet another cracking in the blue block, since the party Forward with Simon Emil Ammitzbøll-Beetle in the tip was presented. Blue block is now represented by no fewer than six parties in Parliament.

Outside the Parliament are a further three small bourgeois parties and banks.

The bourgeois-liberal camp is simply divided in no fewer than nine entities: the firm, the christian democrats, Riskær Petersen Party, the New Bourgeois, the Danish people's Party, The Conservatives, the Left, Liberal Alliance and Forward.

We can say that individualism is thriving well in the blue block. Or you can flip it and say that social cohesion has disappeared. Anders Fogh Rasmussen once said that in other parties, you had one big cannon, but in the Left-had each its little gun to shoot with.

the Desire for a small, private gun has rubbed off, and the blue block looks like a bunch of unorganized rebel groups in a mountain range, a place far from civilization.

Now, the history of the world is rich in examples that it is possible to get rebel groups around a common cause, but as a rule only for a time. Right now it's hard to get an eye on the proceedings, which unite blue block from the right to the left – even if you only need to look at the six parties in the Danish Parliament. It has so far resulted in the longest honeymoon to a government in recent times.

In the longer-term outlook the forecasts also not so good out.

Nine parties, which everyone should be able to find its individual expression to the electorate, will inevitably lead to someone to end up high up in a tree. All the borgelige parties must be able to answer the question of why you should vote for them rather than some of the others. And we already saw in the recent election, what the type of argumentkapløb leads to, namely the ultimate requirements.

If the opposition's putative leader, Jakob Ellemann-Jensen (V), did as prime minister Frederiksen said that he could not work with anyone on everything, but many of the much – then went for a etpartiregering, which brings together its majority from case to case – so would the internal positionskamp among so many parties be fiercely enough that someone will eventually climb high up in a tree.

not to talk about the risks of stemmespild. At least five of the nine civil parties may very well be hovering around the electoral threshold.

so What is the solution for blue block? Well, you can choose a darwinian approach and let natural selection clean the sick and the weak parties away.

You can see on the left stemmespild, from before the Device was invented – and unite. Or you can try to find a clear division of roles, so it will not be a fight of everyone against all, each with its small cannon.
