The VVD and the Labor Party seem to be miles apart ideologically. Yet the leaders of these two parties get along just fine and we may soon see them together in the next Rutte-cabinet. How is this possible? Because politicians in the Netherlands understand the art of compromising. They know that politics is a game of give and take and that you don’t always get what you want. Sure, politicians disagree on a lot of things, but the last thing on their mind is to trample the democratic principles their society is based on.
Is everything always better in the Netherlands? Absolutely not. But in terms of decency, politicians in Curacao still have a lot to learn.
