Dutch Rightist government resigns

In this cartoon, Balkenende asks Bush, Are you going to tell me another fairytale, Uncle George?

The Dutch government has resigned.

Tomorrow, Prime Minister Balkenende will go to the Queen to announce the end of his Rightist coalition.

The cause was the anti immigrant policies of Minister Rita Verdonk and the Ayaan Hirsi Ali affair.

It is to be hoped the next government will not be slavish Bush followers like Balkenende.
