Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

YEP!  🌵 😎

🐒 pulling wool over the eyes of the Dutch ... extreme poor performance by Dutch tv news and media ... result of decades by rightwing parties sketching Dutch government and judiciary as run by leftists and progressives brought up in the 1970s.

What you present to a nation will ultimately be consumed. Capitalism and one's pocket book is the new religion. The COVID-19 pandemic illuminated the generational divide: youth struggling due to high costs of living, housing, debt, and job insecurity. The older generation are by definition seen as "rich" and living in homes that are too big in size. Many of the young adults are living at home years longer due to a privatized economy leading to these shortcomings in Dutch society. Rutte is a master in "nudging" leading to personal stature and considered to be every man's friend.

Rutte rubbing shoulders with UK political leadership AND president Trump. Bowing to White House pressure and canceling delivery of ASML chip machine to China.
