Nobody move....or talk!

This Monday Dutch Parliament held a planned session to discuss the working program of the European Commission. After the Dutch voted "no" to the referendum in July, government swore to enhance public debate and so to try and figure out what the hell the Dutch citizens DO want and make them feel involved.

Well, the session went on as planned, but only four Parliamentarians actually showed up, thereby failing to represent their constituency. For me, as for the four that did show up, this was disappointing. It seems these days national politics are about ignoring Europe as much as possible, and try to get the best deals out of it. In fact this discussed me.
