Not only opposition parties SP, GroenLinks and PvdA react irritated to the holiday destination of the head of state. Government party D66 also finds it “unwise and incomprehensible”, also because the cabinet is so emphatically calling for people to stay in their own environment, D66 MP Sneller said.
Opposition party SP does not understand the choice of the king. “He must set a good example”, says SP MP Van Raak. It does not matter to Van Raak that the holiday home is in a yellow area. The rules apply for four weeks. “Then he will stick to it for four weeks.” Van Raak wants Rutte to be open about the holiday. “It’s really weird when this is kept a secret. It’s not a state secret after all.”
Damage to cabinet message
GroenLinks leader Klaver also wants clarification from Rutte. He talks about a “wrong signal” to the Netherlands when it appears that the king is now going on vacation. “We ask a lot of the population. The government is asking people to stay at home as much as possible and to refrain from all kinds of things they have been looking forward to,” said Klaver. “Then it doesn’t help if there are reports that the royal family is taking the plane to Greece.”
PvdA MP Kuiken: “It is unwise and not a good example for other Dutch people.”
Ron Fresen says the vacation may be a private matter and everything is by the rules. But the political incomprehension is also due to the fact that the Netherlands is in partial lockdown and the cabinet tries with all its might to make everyone aware of the seriousness of the situation. “You shouldn’t push the boundaries of the rules with that message. The king’s journey detracts from the cabinet’s message.”
