DUTCH ELECTION: THE RESULT


So, the people of the Netherlands have chosen the formation of their parliament, the House of Representatives. Democracy in action, again, and it’s a good thing. The Dutch Prime Minister, Mr Mark Rutte, told us last night that the Netherlands had rejected ‘the wrong kind of populism’. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, populism is that […]

DUTCH ELECTION: HOW TO CONDUCT A DEBATE


This televised discussion between the leader of the Christian Union, Mr Gert-Jan Segers and the leader of the Party For Freedom, Mr Geert Wilders is fascinating not only for the content of the debate itself, but also for the quality of the speakers’ handling of the discussion – oh, and the absolute silence of the audience […]

Some people think he’s the bees’ knees in all respects; others simply despise everything about him. Whatever your opinion of Nigel Farage, it’s very difficult not […]

BERLIN ATTACK: TIME TO UNITE THE STATES OF EUROPE?


Here’s how the conversation went.  As is the norm these days, the incident occurs – in this case a truck is driven into shoppers at a Christmas market in Berlin – and folk take to social media to observe and comment.  Like it, or not, that’s what happens. I popped out of the woodwork and […]
