This is just a quick emotional outbreak (a positive one!).
Today, the parliament of North Rhine-Westphalia had an early election after the minority government had what other people would call "failed". The old government was a combination of the Social Democratic Party and The Greens. I have just come out of the poll site where I functioned as a poll worker and turned on the TV as soon as possible. Then I jumped. And cried out of joy. And danced. And then jumped a little more. The minority government has turned into a majority rule, the Christian Democratic Party (conservatives) have lost a f*ck load of votes, The Left isn't part of the parilament anymore while The Pirates (yes, we have that) got into the parilament of Nroth Rhine-Westphalia for the very first time.
As a member of the Green Youth these are awesome news! I am right now celebrating with tea, chocolate and NCIS while spamming Facebook in my amazement.Hip Hip Hooray!!!
