This is not strictly travel-related, but it's too exciting news not to bring to you:

Today, 10:00am, the Dutch prime minister will offer his resignation, as well as that of all other members of cabinet, to the queen. After four years of utterly embarrassing polder-neoconservatism with a hint of xenophobia and a dash of demagoguery, there will finally be room again for some common sense to re-enter dutch politics...

I would normally agree James, but the way it happened was really quite spectacular :-)

This election could be one of the most important elections for both Holland and Europe.
The big question is -

Will Ayaan Hirsi Ali have the Churchillian courage to ignore the death threats and political abuse and stand for parliament again?

Will be watching this with much interest.
