Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Earlier today Gert-Jan Segers, leader of the Christian Union (CU), the smallest party in the current coalition, explicitly ruled out joining a government with Rutte as PM due to his governing  style. Even after 13 hours of literally every party leader in parliament telling him the same, even after having the same accusation (rightfully ) voiced against him in parliament in earlier crises he has the hutzpah to say that he is hurt by Segers words because they come "our of the blue". The arrogance is astonishing.  

Theoretically, with every non-coalition party voting for the motion of disapproval (including even the hard right Christians of the SGP who almost never vote in favour of such motions) there no longer is a possibility of a government with Rutte as PM. We'll have to see if that is true.
