The past few days there have been almost daily pressconferences about the dreadful increase in Coronavictims and people have been ordered to stay at home, take all necessary precautions and take care of each other (esp. the elderly) to avoid even higher number of casualties.
The recent numbers of those affected, taken into hospital or rushed into the IC are staggering!
So, there you have it ... pressconference after conference by the PM, his ministers and all sorts of experts and then, on Friday afternoon, just as soon as the 3 A's return home from school and Autumn Break is looming, off they go, in their private jet to Greece for a week of private holidays.
While everyone else here was urged not to travel, not to go abroad and the whole country is in lockdown it seems the King & Queen seem to think those rules are for everyone else but not for them
The overall feeling is that WA has lost contact with his people and behaves like a spoilt rich kid. When news broke out about their sudden and almost secretive departure hell broke loose and now members of parliament want to know why no-one told WA that this was an extremely unwise decision ....
It is a well-known fact that our present PM (Rutte) is on very good terms with the King, but well...in our constitutional democracy the PM is officially responsible for everything that involves the Royals, so he will have to respond in front of the Second Chamber and there are heaps of questions waiting to be answered!
Meanwhile WA and his family only stayed at their villa (yes, issuing an over-the-top pompous statement!) and then travelled to Athens were they boarded a normal flight by KLM and were back at Huis ten Bosch last night by 8.pm.
WA has been called stupid before (not the brightest of Beatrix' sons!) but this is really one of his biggest mistakes.
Trust in the King & Monarchy are rapidly plummeting to below sea-level, so to speak....
