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