You would think that someone with Mark Rutte’s talent and talent would get the reassurance of knowing that he is also suitable for other jobs. That he could go to a multinational company, on a board of directors, as an independent consultant, a pianistthe singer. He’s even made it through his retirement without worrying—taking an audition here, reading there, and having a summer hit with Gordon. He’s also been teaching at a high school for years, so I’m assuming he’s not doing worthless work there either.
But there is only one job Mark Rutte wants, and if that job is no longer Mark Rutte is done, and that is to be the Prime Minister of our country. In recent years, he has pressed the heels of his innovative leather shoes so deeply into the sand that he now has relics from the distant past attached to them. Nobody can turn him away, he certainly doesn’t want to let himself go, when the time is right they have to pull him out of Torentje, office chair and all, ten strong men, while he cracks open an antique desk with nails.
The Groningen Debate (a name so euphemistic that I secretly hoped the room would discuss the poor performance of a downhill football club, but forgot they actually stopped winning there last year) was one of the big events. Rutte to Account, mea culpa, Opposition is furious, Coalition dilution, Shame, Rutte learned from it, Don’t consider resigning – What do you think -, Motion of no confidence, Not to worry.
When the time comes, they must drag him, the chair and all, the ten strong men, from Torentje
In the meantime he gave a master’s degree in linguistic gymnastics. There was old material, and some new songs as well. For example, it became very specific when the opposition asked Rota why this issue was different from that of benefits, after which his previous ministry resigned. The answer: Like no other, it all went wrong in the sequel case. In essence, gas extraction began decades ago as a good thing, a good thing with collateral damage.
The new language of choice was the phrase “ultimate mental responsibility.” In any case, Rottie was “completely mentally responsible”. It wasn’t clear to me what he meant, but I think he basically means that we have to know that everything affects him a lot and that it doesn’t mean that he’s actually responsible and that he has to attach clear consequences to that, which is what, the people of Groningen and the parliamentary commission of inquiry itself are saying that.
He thought Mark Rutte was the key and the right guy to drive recovery, like a drunken student who says after ten beers he can still really drive.
Speaking of responsibility: He doesn’t punish himself, because the rest of Holland doesn’t either. Election after election. Then a large group of people are jointly responsible. At least mentally.
