In this episode, Annette and Mathieu have a European view on the Dutch election results. Together with Catherine de Vries, professor of political science at Bocconi University in Milan, they put the results in a European perspective by looking at the political playing field. Does the result fit in a European trend? They also try to explore what we can expect from a new cabinet when it comes to Europe. Will there be a State Secretary for European Affairs?
And like every episode, calls are made to Berlin. Because the CDU is not doing well in this German election year.
