Overthrow, anyone?

There was no: rioting, raiding of the Tweede Kamer, protesting against the current government, outrage in the media, rebellion among workers in any sector at all, cry for revision. None of that.

What there was? Barely any reaction to the actions of my government. What they did? They passed a new law regarding sexual harassment that basically turns the legal world upside down: now someone accused of having conducted some form of sexual harassment is guilty until proven otherwise. I’m not sure how this will work out in even the most basic of cases; “He touched me tits, y’rhonour.” “I didn’t, ye liar!”

I’m not the most eloquent person to be worried about this. I know someone who most certainly is, but he exchanged his soul for haiku. Anyone know more or better about this whole silly-law-passing action?
