Well, Dutch politics are a little less boring since the arrival of the clown
Pim Fortuin (is that the orthography? I never saw his name written). A sillier
politician you cannot find (I mean: in Holland :)) ). But though silly, he has
to be taken seriously. I've not heard him compared to Berlusconi for nothing...

Typical Dutch behaviour: defending their country for everything they do in
front of foreigners, carrying on complaining inside that things are not going
well :)) . For that, they're exactly like the French :)) .
Take your life as a movie: do not let anybody else play the leading role.
