Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The other party in the Netherlands to be strengthened in the Thursday vote is the left-wing liberal -- and most outspokenly pro-European party in the Netherlands -- D66. It grew from one to three seats in the European parliament. The boost for these two parties showed that Dutch voters are moving to the fringes of the political spectrum.

Since when is D66 in the fringes of the political spectrum? It may have lost a lot of seats in the national parliament, but it seems to be pretty mainstream nonetheless.

Oh, wait, I forgot it is left liberal. That explains it.

The brainless should not be in banking. — Willem Buitler
