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?

  1. What? Nothing in the media, either? Where can one find more about this?

  2. That’s the fun part, Mark. It was in the papers a week ago. Made the front page only barely. They dedicated about six lines to it, on the right hand side. Apparently it wasn’t that important to the media. Weird huh.

  3. Rob touched me tits, y’rhonour!

  4. Mathias, now imagine that I’d be arrested simply because you said that.

    Yikes.
