Dutch formation of a new cabinet fails...

Ivo Opstelten

Tonight the negotiations for a new Dutch cabinet failed, led by counselor Ivo Opstelten. Earlier yesterday Elio Di Rupo resigned at the Belgian King, because he was not able to create a solid coalition in Belgium.

My suggestion would be to switch both counselors, just to see if an objective and refreshing point of view would help both countries to be able to start a serious national government.

Besides I'm very disappointed that the Freedom Party of Wilders will join the opposition once again. The risk of this is that Wilders has carte blanche again to shout at the government, so he will get more and more support until the next elections.
