Yesterday, Minister Sigrid Kaag opened the academic year of Mandeville Academy. It was a great lecture where the students were able to ask lots of questions about fiscal policy and the euro system. The college was led by the skilled moderator Thierry van Vugt . The lecture was concluded with a beautiful poem by Chris Bellekom ‘There are the trolls’.
Because what Mrs. Kaag and we have received over the past 24 hours for insults, threats and other filth is beyond all limits. Hundreds of messages by mostly anonymous heroes. This is not okay, folks. I think this is an expression of an extremely dangerous fascist undercurrent that is gnawing at our democratic legal order. Anyway, Chris Bellekom has described it beautifully.
