In this week’s podcast we ask how the government can afford to give away €1.4 billion to foreign shareholders but only has €100 to spend on a flag for the Parliament chamber. Our favourite football manager Dick Advocaat bows out on a high note, a student fights for the right to be employed by Deliveroo and the OECD confirms what we’ve always suspected about Dutch doctors. Meanwhile, gummy bears caused a commotion in Utrecht while raw herring and manure were tainted with the whiff of corruption. In our discussion we investigate why the MH17 disaster has become a target for peddlers of fake news and conspiracy theories.
