Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It's important to notice that the coalition (+ Wilders) doesn't have a majority in the upper chamber (Eerste Kamer). Even including the SGP they are one seat short (75 seats in total, 38 needed for a majority. CDA+VVD=35, SGP has 2, Wilders has none). That means they will have great difficulty getting any controversial laws through until march, though they of course will be able to change policies.
