DutchNews Podcast – The Whistling Dixit Edition – Week 6

Photoshop montage featuring Dick Advocaat, Geert Wilders and various schoolchildren holding up protest banners.

There’s an end of days feel to the podcast as we review a week in which schoolchildren took a collective day off to demand urgent action on global warming, just days after MPs agreed to talk about it for a bit longer. We also look at how Geert Wilders became Islam’s number one recruiting sergeant, why a no-deal Brexit could trigger medicine shortages in the Netherlands, a setback for British expats and Dutch shoemakers, and perhaps the most alarming news of all – is Dick Lawyer really about to pull out of football management?
