Thanks for this!

I don't understand Verdonk. This whole affair seems a suicidal operation.What could she have thought, how else would this move be received? "We don't make exceptions" law-and-orderism? Or, maybe, she feared that not acting would lead to accusations of VVD cronyism?

BTW, I tried to clean up some confusing HTML and English grammar in your post. Please check whether I haven't over-done it.

I wrote this late in night and in a frustrated mood - definitely not the way how I've written previous diaries. Thanks for the corrections, and also (I guess) for the exposure...

...relentless on the "law and orderism" yesterday night, citing a case of an Iranian family that was send back because the father had not provided the right name. Cronyism never even entered the picture, as far as I can tell. Not that Verdonk allowed time for it...

The criticism of the opposition is scoring points: the laws on naturalisation should not be adopted so rigidly in the first place.
