Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The entire Cabinet walked out of a critical debate in the Tweede Kamer after the leader of the far right Forum voor Democratie (FvD) party, Thierry Baudet, lashed out at Finance Minister Sigrid Kaag. The discussion on the upcoming year's budget, considered the most important debate of the parliamentary year, was then adjourned. Baudet was not allowed to continue his planned remarks.

The Cabinet members left because of Baudet's comments about Kaag's education at the University of Oxford. He said the college where she studied was notorious as a spy school. Baudet's speech was largely about conspiracies.
