Meet our new Prime Minister and Vice Prime Minister

Today Yesterday the CDA party conference said yes (68% for and 32% against) to a coalition forged between two political parties CDA (Christian Democrats) and VVD (Liberal Party) to form a minority government that will be “tolerated” by Geert Wilders’ PVV (Ban the criminals Party?).

On your Left Mark Rutten and on your right Maxime Verhagen. Both nicely coiffured with Geert’s hairdo. I believe this is one of the best political photoshops I’ve seen in ages. I found it at FB

Our regular readers will know that The Hague is the center of Dutch Government. So from time to time we will feature some of the Dutch political idiosyncrasies. I predicted already that Rutte needs his life vest to keep this government afloat. Today it is still uncertain that there will be a government, because the 3 parties have 76 of the 150 seats in Parliament and 2 members of the CDA faction still hesitate whether they will condone the tolerating …. Sigh politics ain’t easy.
