Dutch government quits over ‘colossal stain’ of tax subsidy scandal

THE HAGUE (Reuters) – Prime Minister Mark Rutte’s government resigned on Friday, accepting responsibility for wrongful accusations of fraud by the tax authorities that drove thousands of families to financial ruin, often on the basis of ethnicity.

The resignation is (unfortunately) just one for the record. The Dutch elections were supposed to be held in march 2021, and there will be no elections before march.

You very well point out the position of The Netherlands in Europe as a founding member, and we are the second highest financial contributor. I am afraid nothing points to a real political change coming out of The Netherlands.
