If you are a political geek and/or love well-made Danish TV drama and haven’t watched Borgen then 1) you are quite mad and 2) you should resolve to get into it as soon as possible. It’s wonderful.
In the second series, the third party in the coalition is giving the PM some trouble. The PM is trying to build a broad cross-party consensus on the “reform package” but the Greens want the reforms to be greener faster. The Greens start to lose traction when a story “emerges” in the media about the Green leader having a gas-guzzling old Cadillac. He tells the media that he keeps it mostly in his garage and only drives a few hundred kilometres a year. The journos find out that he’s been telling porkies and that he uses it as his main car. Eventually he has to resign in embarrassment.
The Danes obviously have a lower threshold for rank hypocrisy.
