I'm not a fan of conservative PM Mark Rutte as you all know by now, never haven been if my memory serves me right.
VVD PM Rutte enjoys backing of his own party and the rest of the nation is very much divided. As the populist parties entered Dutch politics, the conservative VVD moved further to the right adopting policies to serve Xenophobia and Islamophobia.
What the masses ask for, we give what they want to stay in position of political power. It's been this way for eons to the empires of Rome, Greece, Peking and ancient Egypt. Rutte has collected a strong PR team and the followers are reporters and journalists close to the seat of power in The Hague.
Just recently was the very first time critical questions were asked at a press briefing ... Mark Rutte came apart and acted like Trump stung by a bee. The policy from Dutch government followed closely what was said in London and Washington DC. Herd immunity was the very first common denominator ... lasted for less than a week when he was called on his wisdom by virologists and epidemiologists.

Wembley Match Analysis
Football is a game and in the end the Variants are the winners.
Full stadium filled to the roof with highly enthusiastic supporters -
Translation: "Football is a party, but... such a big crowd at Wembley in Delta times ... brr ... terrible ... a shame ... that's where misery comes from. That people don't start thinking that this is the new normal."
