Dutch government collapses over migrant issue

ER Editor: We’re not entirely sure what is really going down here. Is it the ouster of a globalist WEF puppet as it seems? Why is migration suddenly the big issue when land grab and nitrogen policy, for example, seem more egregious, at least in non-Dutch news. Certainly, immigration has become a sensitive topic since video footage has been coming out of France allegedly showing immigrants rioting and destroying property. Meanwhile, the EU is trying to push through a new migration deal where countries either accept more migrants or pay up. Poland and Hungary are not willing to comply. Polish PM Morawiecki has publicly stated that he doesn’t wish to see Poland become like France.

In the report below, it sounds like arch-globalist Rutte, who’s been around for 13 years and probably loves mass migration, is actually trying to appear tough over it, relatively speaking. Which is most odd. It sounds a little engineered. Are we witnessing a species of what happened to Sanna Marin in Finland (election loss), Alain Berset (stepped down for no reason), Jacinda/Jack Ardern (no reason given), the arrest of Nicola Sturgeon (already out of office)?

Dutch government collapses over migrants

The tenuous ruling coalition could not agree on how to handle asylum-seekers and refugees


Prime Minister Mark Rutte of the Netherlands submitted his resignation to the king on Friday, after the four-party ruling coalition could not reach common ground on migrant policy. The caretaker cabinet will hold office until a new general election.

“Migration is a major political and social issue,” Rutte told reporters in The Hague on Friday evening. “Now that we have been unable to find agreement on this, we have collectively assessed that the political support under the coalition has disappeared.”

The four coalition members have “very different views on migration policy,” he added. “And today, unfortunately, we have to draw the conclusion that those differences are irreconcilable.”

King Willem-Alexander has been notified of the government’s resignation. Rutte will stay on as the caretaker PM until a new general election, which will probably happen in November.

The main bone of contention at Friday’s coalition meeting was the proposal to limit the number of refugees and asylum-seekers in the country of 18 million that is already facing a housing shortage. Rutte’s People’s Party for Freedom and Democracy (VVD) and the Christian Democrats wanted to limit the number of relatives who could follow asylum-seekers already in the country at 200 per year, and create a separate category for war refugees and those fleeing political persecution. The other two partners, D66 and the Christian Union, opposed “breaking up families.”

The Netherlands received 46,000 asylum applications in 2022, with the government projecting it might see as many as 70,000 this year, more than the previous high recorded in 2015. The country has also taken in about 95,000 Ukrainians under “temporary protection” until March 2025.

Rutte has been prime minister since October 2010, as part of four different ruling coalitions. The most recent one was put together in January 2022, after the longest negotiations in Dutch political history. The four-party bloc ended up with just 77 seats in the 150-member parliament.

“Quick elections now,” Geert Wilders, leader of the Freedom Party, tweeted after Rutte’s announcement. The Green Left leader Jesse Klaver also called for a new parliament, telling the public broadcaster NOS that the country “needs a change of direction.”

  1. Odd. I read originally that the Dutch government was going to declare martial law in anticipation of a massive farmers’ protest. Now they are telling us it’s really a “migrant issue”? Is this a bait and switch? If so does one have to beware of a “bait and switch” in leadership?
