  1. About the Dutch government. This is a multi party system. To make decisions you need to have the majority. To form a govenment some of the parties have to compromise and make a coalition. If one of the parties in the coalition disagrees with certain actions they’ll get out of the coalition and elections are needed.

    1. Bert, thank you for the comment and the clear explanation. I wonder how things get done, how does the nation move forward if one disagreement (though the issue may be important) can dissolve an entire coalition government. If you have any thoughts on this, please share. I find it fascinating. Thanks again.

  2. You actually make it appear really easy with your presentation
    but I to find this topic to be really one thing that I believe I would by no means understand.
    It kind of feels too complex and extremely broad for me.

    I’m looking ahead in your subsequent submit, I will attempt to get the dangle of it!

  3. First of all I would like to say terrrific blog!

    I hhad a quick qusstion that I’d likke to ask if you do
    not mind. I was curios too khow how yyou center yourself
    and clear your mind before writing. I have
    hhad difficulty clearing my mind in getting my thoughts
    outt there. I truly do take pleasure inn writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally
    lost simply jusxt trying to figure outt how too begin. Any
    suggestions or tips? Thank you!

    1. Thank you, Robbin!

      Just be patient with yourself and begin. This is why first, second and third drafts exist. Based on what you said, write for at least 20 minutes to get your first 10 – 15 minute warm up out of the way. Best of luck to you!
