Just in: the negotiations between VVD, CDA, D66, and GL have failed. I assume that means that CU will be swapped in for GL. The question is who's going to get the blame.Informer Schippers (VVD) blamed not one of the parties, but several sharp disagreements, notably on migration, but also on climate and income, for the failure. The party leaders concurred: apparently the decision to break off the negotiations was taken by all of them, instead of one party leaving the table.It would be interesting to hear more about the exact nature of the disagreements, but that won't happen tonight. The party leaders are being very disciplined so far: they know they might be required to run a reprise of this round of negotiations later on, and there's no point in hurting anyone's feelings.[...]
Another Quirksmode follower, I see (though I admit I haven't been too loyal, it has been more off than on the last decade).
There's a while to go before the Netherlands reach Belgian "we need no stinking government". I get a little Czech deja vu though, but I hope the Dutch political scene isn't as immature as that though.
The issue of immigration is a problem as the nutty Greens are part of the complete open door nonsense and a proper government cannot still be steeled after months.
The only thing going on in Europe is France, so please stop about invisible, irrelevant, Dutch and the sort.
Might I mention again: Islam is a faith diametrically opposed to any form of democracy? And the faith cannot reform...
I thought that so were you?
I suppose you might be connecting the socialist-Catholic proclivity for multicultural appeasement, better known under the misnomer of respect, with the overall pro-migration vision of a liberal(-democrat).
atheist leftist multicultural pro homosexual northern relativist?
Mind, Frenzie, I'm not saying I disagree with Belfrager's characterization. I'm just noting that he doesn't seem to understand that we both inhabit the same planet. I think we can get along, 'tho we disagree about a lot; he seems to think we can't.
But -seriously- do you think Islam is capable of a "reformation"?
(Don't you wish your language had a word like that? )
I think that still matters, since Islam is about 700 years behind us!
By that reasoning, Christians are several thousand years behind politeists and animists...
Polytheists and animists have updated their beliefs?
Oh? Polytheists and animists have updated their beliefs?
