Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Having had weeks of a compliant media and full control of messaging to the citizens if The Netherlands, the Dutch government is held to account for the poor performance and high number of hospitalizations and deaths.

PM Rutte in anger shouts out: " You cross a boundary of decency." Up till now the PM could send replies to written questions. In the morning, the Commission on Health had a meeting with RIVM Head van Dissel. Members of parliament were well prepared, better than the situation of testing and stock of PPE for first line medical workers.

The debate with Lillian Marijnissen from the Socialist Party (SP) headquartered in Oss in the province of Brabant. Eindhoven and surroundings is the epicenter of the COVUD-19 pandemic.

Her statement that truly angered PM Mark Rutte: "It's better the be a smartphone searching for an App the a hospital worker in need of a face mask. It would be nice for the Prime Minister if he tackles the search for PPE with the same vigor and enthusiame. Rutte exploded with anger.

The first dent in the image of PM Mark Rutte ... may he have met his Waterloo  🤕 🇬🇧 🇷🇴 🇫🇷
