DutchNews Podcast – The Sacred Cows Edition – Week 5
In this week’s podcast we ask who was responsible for the cyber attacks that mysteriously hit Dutch banks a week after details emerged of the security services’ role in a counterespionage operation against Russia. Plans to cut gas production in Groningen and compensate earthquake-hit householders got back on track, the senate debated changes to the law on organ donation and there was a happy ending for Hermien the fugitive cow. In our discussion we look at why the debate about the Dutch colonial legacy has flared up again.
