Empty roads during curfew; meanwhile riots escalate in Urk

Reportedly, the youngsters took to the streets, played loud music, and drank alcohol. At least a hundred young people had gathered in the center around 9 p.m. From there, they marched through the streets chanting “dictatorship.” They were addressed by someone with a megaphone who said, “today is the first day that we let you know that we are done.” The protestors also lit fireworks with which they attacked the police.

The police struggled to bring the situation on the control and had to call in the riot control unit. What followed was a game of ‘cat and mouse’, in which the police with long batons ran through the streets and groups of protestors repeatedly managed to escape via side streets.

Kinderbeihilfen-Skandal: Niederländische Regierung tritt zurück

Rund 20.000 Eltern waren jahrelang fälschlicherweise als Betrüger dargestellt und in große finanzielle Not gestürzt worden. Der Rücktritt wird vor allem als symbolischer Schritt bewertet und wird wohl kaum Einfluss auf den Wahlausgang am 17. März haben.

In den Umfragen liegt Ruttes Volkspartei für Freiheit und Demokratie (VVD) weit vorn.

Dutch PM prefers a ‚gift‘ to a loan for European coronavirus support

He said he would also prefer setting up a new support fund rather than having countries use the European Stability Mechanism (ESM).

„If you do (support) from the ESM, then it’s a loan and a loan must be paid back,“ he said. „If you do it as a gift, then it’s: ‚Listen, you guys have been hit hard, but together with a number of wealthier countries, we’re prepared to bear the direct costs of the coronavirus crisis‘.“

„Schwer krank oder sternhagelvoll?“

Rutte sagte dem flämischen Sender VRT, „soviel er wisse“, leide Juncker „seit geraumer Zeit an einem Rückenproblem“. Im Juni hatte der EU-Kommissionspräsident dem irischen Parlament nach sichtbaren Schwierigkeiten beim Treppensteigen gesagt, das komme von Problemen mit dem Ischiasnerv, die er seit einem Autounfall habe. Der britischen Boulevardzeitung Sun sagte er darüber hinaus, es wäre ihm lieber, wenn er stattdessen betrunken wäre.
