People who vote for the free-market Liberals (VVD) donate more money to good causes than Labour (PvdA) voters but Green Left and Christian Democrat are the most generous, the Volkskrant reports today.

The poorer and better educated you are, the bigger the share of your income that goes to charity as well, the paper says, quoting a TNS Nipo and Gallup poll. People who vote for the anti-immigration LPF are the meanest – giving just 0.5% of their income to charity. Which would seem to indicate they are not only LPF voters but badly educated and rich as well. Still, if you want to save money, there is no better time to take out life insurance, the Telegraaf reports. Discounts of up to 30% are being offered by some insurance companies, as long as you are not poor, a smoker or do a dangerous job.This could save you up to €50,000 over 30 years, the paper says. Presuming you live that long.
