It looks like the Danes have done what so many people do and got rid of their government of ten years' standing and Lord Kinnock and the Baroness Kinnock (they are separate titles) will see their daughter-in-law as the new Danish Prime Minister. The result is likely to be very close and Helle Thorning-Schmidt, the 44-year-old former MEP, may not be able to get all her social welfare ideas into place, especially as Denmark already has very high taxation. The prediction is that she is not likely to do much about the tough immigration laws. But who knows what else they might think of. Another referendum to get Denmark into the euro or is that now a lost cause?
