Cheese and chips are on the menu in this week’s podcast as the Chinese are accused of stealing the Netherlands’ digital secrets, Donald Trump threatens to raise the tariffs on Gouda and Edam and the country is warned of a growing obesity crisis. We also ask why Enschede council bailed out its football club, why the Dutch are taking over Britain’s railways and whether your tax demands will be arriving by drone in future. In our discussion we try to unravel the Moebius band of disaster that is Brexit and what the new deadlines mean from a Dutch perspective.
