DutchNews podcast – The Paul Ducks Out Edition – Week 23
In this week’s podcast we learn about dead ducks in Rotterdam, the cheese shop boom in Amsterdam and the squeeze on international school places in The Hague. We’ve also got news of the coalition talks and the two communities rocked by the deaths of local schoolgirls. In our discussion we ask why Dutch Parliament is investigating the tax breaks that allow international companies to save billions.
