A good news week as coronavirus infections start coming down across the kingdom – except in Curacao, where Dutch tourists are touching down with their fake test certificates and piling into the beach bars. An awkward week for education minister Arie Slob, who is forced to switch sides over anti-gay school charters in the Bible Belt. Amsterdam city council has some distasteful suggestions for celebrating Sint-Maarten, while police in Limburg are surprised to find a cellar that hasn’t been converted into a drugs lab.
Ophef of the week: ‘Sprouts not sweets’ advice for Sint-Maarten leaves bitter taste
