UK Netherlands relations

Post by scotia on Sat Mar 03, 2018 11:53 am

Hi guys,
i just wanted something of my chest thats been annoying me for a while.
After seeing an interview with a british man just now on the dutch news, i felt realy angry.
I think the current situation with the brexit is being mistold and abused by the media in your and our country.

We dont hold any grudge against you guys for voting for the brexit.
Its only those pesky politicians in brussel that are so negative about you guys.
I can totaly understand you guys and dont like the direction the eu is going with growing to big and paying more and more money.
The media over here is telling all sorts of lies and negative things about you guys.
I hate that and i see reactions online from people from the UK that are just wrong about us.

We also dont like the medling from the EU in our country.
We also dont like the amount we are paying that goes to countries like Greece or similar southern european countries.
I can list a whole bunch of things that we also agree on but the post would get to long.

So thats why i wanted to post this for my friends acros the sea.
We have had several referendums ourselve about the EU and everytime the people vote against more power to the EU or a bigger EU.
They have now stopped asking us on more subjects because our answers dont go well with the politicians in brussel.
I think if there was another one we also would leave, but they are afraid to ask us.

The two biggest parties in the netherlands are both right wing.
We have had right wing goverments for years and years now.
We are not the kind of sjw lefties both our medias portrai us like.

We have had good relations for ever and i hope it will stay that way.
So dont believe everything you hear on the news.
We have much more in commen than you think.

You guys speak more dutch than you think.

We are not that different.
Maybe whe should make another union with just northern european countries and maybe gemany if they can get their act together again Laughing

Don’t worry Scotia we still like you....even though you prefer a Suzuki over a Daihatsu!
As for politicians and the media, when would you ever get a straight answer or the truth....never...it’s not in ‘their’ interest.
