For those of you who missed it: we had an election night last night in The Netherlands. The far-right populist rookie Thierry Baudet came from out of nowhere to become the biggest party in the Dutch Senate. Pretty impressive.
He ran on a predictable platform of anti-immigration, anti-EU and most of all: anti-establishment. The irony is that Baudet - a young urban intellectual dandy - is as establishment as can be, who runs his own party - ironically called Forum for Democracy - like an autocrat. People didn't seem to mind the lack of congruence between his words and his deeds.
