Even in organizing elections the UK has to be different from the rest of Europe. Well, actually, the Dutch also voted for the EU elections last Thursday, rather than on Sunday like everybody else. While catholics have always exploited the divine benefits of organizing the vote on a Sunday, protestants don’t vote on the day of the Lord… As such, voting is organized on weekdays in the UK and the Netherlands, as it also is in the U.S. As a result, we find ourselves in the highly surreal situation that the UK and Dutch state has crucial information regarding the outcome of their respective EU elections that it cannot share with those that actually voted, their citizens.
