DutchNews podcast – The Jihadi Daycare Edition – Week 8

A church in Limburg an der Lahn, Germany, mistakenly used on an FvD campaign poster for the provincial elections.

The sound of doors slamming shut echoes through this week’s podcast as the Netherlands says it will turn away returning IS fighters, Venezuela closes its border with Curacao and a Dutch journalist has a full-on crockery-smashing row with a Fox News host. We also find out how the cabinet got its fingers burned over energy bills and discuss whether compelling children from immigrant families to attend pre-school will really help them integrate better.
