One of my close friends

One of my close friends from way back in high schoolCharlotte Fischer – is a politician with The Danish Social-Liberal Party. She is quoted in the 1-7. February 2002 edition of the Danish weekly Weekendavisen as saying: “We (the Danish Social-Liberal Party) want to become Denmark’s international party”. These are courageous words in a political debate where left and right of the old political spectrum is promoting xenophobia, nationalism and anti-globalism. I wish (Char)Lotte had been elected for the Danish Parliament in the November 2001 election. She obtained a majority of personal votes in her constituency. Unfortunately, due to a purely technical error from her own party officials the runner-up got her seat in the parliament and the runner-up did not have the decency to give up voluntarily his seat to Lotte.
