Every day you can read what people think of the big news of the day. Today: this is what you say on our reaction platform NUjij about yesterday’s monster victory of the BoerBurgerBeweging. Caroline van der Plas’ party will receive no fewer than sixteen seats in the Senate, according to the latest forecasts.
User R_Ven_ceebad says:
“The people have spoken. Whether it is people who consciously choose the BBB or cast a protest vote, this is democracy. In any case, it is a signal that the population is very dissatisfied with The Hague.”
“So much has gone wrong and we have been fooled so often that NL is now done with it. If the coalition does not see this and still seeks a majority on the left in the first chamber, then that is another signal that the citizen is not taken seriously. It would also be very undemocratic to ignore this result. A big fail for the coalition. Time for change and a real new administrative culture.”
User M_Van_der_Knaap says:
“‘No one can get around the BBB anymore’. Let Carolien be euphoric for a moment. That will pass soon enough when she really starts to realize what wasp’s nest she has maneuvered herself into. From the sidelines it is very easy to use big words and to dismiss the government as totally unsuitable. But now the BBB is in a different position. Now all those BBB voters expect that radically different choices will be made in the field of nitrogen issues. And that is also for the BBB and Carolien impossible. Because ‘No one can ignore the court ruling’.”
“So either she stays on the sidelines, despite the seat gain, or she helps to implement the proposed nitrogen policy, which has been criticized so much. Both choices seem difficult to explain to the supporters.”

“It is not surprising that so many people vote for BBB.”
“This coalition and the plans they made came about without anyone really choosing it. Kaag would not continue with Rutte, the same for CU. In fact, the CDA already had a large number of seats less by bullying away Omtzigt. This In short, the coalition could never actually count on a majority.”
“And now, in the first election, the first opportunity for correction, people are also overwhelmingly expressing their dissent. Most of the country clearly doesn’t want dictations from voters in a few big cities (where the voters of the parties that pretend to be green) who complain from the concrete jungle that there is not enough nature in the rest of the country and therefore everything has to be overhauled.”
“BBB already said it: ‘Overijssel is ours.’ Clear summary, freely translated: mind your own city, then we do what we do best in the countryside.”
User Iron_Maiden81 says:
“What a gigantic defeat for nature in the Netherlands. People do not realize that our ecological system is about to collapse. Pesticides and nitrogen kill a lot of insects, which in turn affects the rest of the flora and fauna. Just take a look how few insects there are on your car windshield on a summer day after a car trip. This is indicative of the decline of nature. Why should we sacrifice nature for the productivity growth of a few thousand farmers?!”
