Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Clicked to see who Medusa was. Saw this:

"Voor Nederlandse waarden tegen alles wat links is.komt op voor de boeren en de vissers.
lid van FVD maar ben ook voor de PVV tegen Brussel"

No surprise given that the tweet is criticizing Rutte for not being right-wing enough. If that is the alternative, stick with Rutte.

As so often Rutte has demonstrated, he's Conservative with Tory values ... friendly with Boris Johnson and Donald Trump.

One can hardly be satisfied to compare Farage with BoJo and be happy with the latter. Decades ago, the Christian Democrats, D66 Liberal Democrats and Labour Party PvdA combination held power as centrists ... the Rutte administrations have followed Conservative policy on the economy, finances and trouncing on the less fortunate. No "Third Way" and no solidarity with the less educated working people. Inequality has grown... in Mediterranean countries he is hated for austerity and being "stingy" adding conditions to COVID Relief packages. Rutte is not well liked by Merkel nor Macron ... Rutte Power play failed with the Nordic nations.
