In the week when the most boring man in politics returned to the cabinet, a plot by taxi drivers to storm Uber’s offices with fireworks and molotov cocktails was foiled Dutch cyclists won a clutch of medals at the indoor track world championships, we dig deep to find some more riveting news – like the car abandoned in the middle of the sea and the homeless man who was fined for cooking heron’s legs. We also have the second part of our discussion on referendums and the so-called ‘dragnet’ law that will give AIVD agents more powers to tap your internet traffic.
