Going Dutch: ‘Game over for euro if Netherlands quits’
April 25, 2012
The caretaker Dutch Prime Minister is still desperate to push through budget cuts and has called on lawmakers to help him. The government collapsed on Monday when Mark Rutter resigned, as it failed to agree on painful measures demanded by Brussels. The political crisis has already been described as a revolt against enforced EU austerity. UK-based journalist and blogger Neil Clark says there’s every chance now the Netherlands will abandon the Euro, which he believes would be disastrous for the single currency.
