Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
On Conservative Approach, Rutte Takes Cue from BoJo ... they could have been twins ... not for the first time! On foreign policy David Cameron, Theresa May, Boris Johnson as well as Mark Rutte are on the same page. Even in Jamuary, Rutte expressed his "love" for president Trump ... see my diaries.

On herd immunity, what Rutte proclaimed in his Address to the Nation on Monday, he backed off (even denied he said it) in Dutch parliament two days later.

Dutch embrace 'herd immunity' as dire death warning prompts UK to change course

My Dutch is perfect and Rutte is a smooth talker ... it's all PR. Damn, he even shops in the same supermarkt, an Albert Heijn which doesn't quite stock up in goods as well as competitor Jumbo. Rutte lives close by and I have run in to him on occasion. I even had a brief chat with him in the street where he lives ... he was flabbergasted ... I acted as if he  wasn't recognized as the Prime Minister. It truly frustrated him. 🤣
