"The government (2002)" Netherlands Favorite Tip by OlafS

Netherlands General: 435 reviews and 419 photos

Favorite thing: The picture shows the short-lived Balkenende 1 administration, a bunch of useless frauds, clowns and amateurs who'd rather fight each other than the problems of society. One vice-minister had to quit her job already after 8 hours because of her criminal past! For a while it was funny, but after a few months of many scandals everyone had enough of this charade. There came new elections, but the two biggest parties could not agree on whether to support George Bush' war against Iraq or not, even though the general public is perfectly clear on this. In April the two parties found another reason to argue. Finally on May the 27th a new government was installed, eager to make life for us very difficult.
