Crisis in The Hague



Two years ago Mark Rutte proved on board of the lifeboat of Scheveningen, the Beach Resort of The Hague, that the lifeboat can survive a 360 roll over. Mark Rutte is the leader of the VVD party, the biggest of many small political parties in Dutch Parliament, since the general elections of June 9, 2010. Yesterday it became clear the coalition talks he was leading with several other parties (again) wouldn’t result in a new Dutch Government. Always amazing how thorough the Dutch can be in trade and industry, but not in politics. Marc will need all buoyancy of his life vest to get the ship of state upright.
