This week we look at two instances of climate activism in the Netherlands and ask why the superglue does not seem to work. Asylum minister Eric van der Burg’s troubles continue as local councils give him yet another ultimatum about sorting out the mess of where refugees should sleep. We look at why local tax officials in Enschede are after photos of home owners’ toilets and wonder if there is any self interest in Dutch cricketers suggestions that the big test nations spend more time warming up in the Netherlands. The NS public book price is first delayed then cancelled after voter fraud and animal welfare groups have accused rangers at the Hoge Veluwe national park of taming a wolf to show they are a threat to humans after all.
Ophef of the week: Public book prize cancelled after attempts to manipulate the vote
