MPs: ‘Disconcerting image, cabinet has a lot to explain’

On Monday evening, MPs react disapproved and displeased with the contents of the minutes of the Council of Ministers that have been released. THINK party leader Farid Azarkan speaks of a “disconcerting image” and SP leader Lilian Marijnissen calls it “unbelievable. So this is about people being destroyed”. PVV leader Geert Wilders speaks of a “corrupt gang” and calls out: “Get out!”

Several ministers complained during the Council of Ministers on 12 July 2019 about critical MPs from coalition groups, including Pieter Omtzigt of the CDA and Helma Lodders of the VVD. Minister Wouter Koolmees (D66) of Social Affairs took the lead in this and was supported by Prime Minister Mark Rutte (VVD), Minister Wopke Hoekstra (CDA) of Finance and Deputy Prime Minister Kajsa Ollongren (D66).

“They didn’t want to ask critical questions and they’ve tried everything, through others, to intimidate and muzzle them. Unsustainable,” says Azarkan. “Incredibly sad that people in the Council of Ministers were not concerned with those duped parents, but with themselves, with saving their own skin,” he tweeted.

Marijnissen calls it “horrible to read that the Rutte cabinet was busier with hiding it than with solving the misery of innocent parents in the allowance scandal. Because the House did not receive this information, the misery continued for longer. This cannot be justified. And to think that Mark Rutte therefore thinks that ‘nothing improper’ has happened. ”

The minutes state that any precedent effect can be broader than just for the Tax and Customs Administration and the UWV, and should be avoided as much as possible. Marijnissen calls that “unbelievable. So this is about people being destroyed. They don’t care. Much to explain Thursday”.

Wilders wants Rutte, Kaag and Hoekstra ‘behind bars’

Wilders states on Twitter: “The House has been lied to. Innocent people have been criminalized. And Rutte, Koolmees, Hoekstra, Ollongren and others criticize MPs who do their work, want to raise awareness, silence and correct them. Kaag wants” frameworks “for MPs. GET OUT!”

The PVV leader then copied a campaign slogan of former US President Donald Trump by ‘Lock them up‘to tweet. Wilders stated in an earlier tweet that Rutte, Kaag and Hoekstra belong “behind bars”.

Wilders also refers to the fact that Minister Ferd Grapperhaus (CDA) of Justice and Security offered in November 2019 to think along with Minister Hoekstra about a way in which the cabinet could satisfy the House of Representatives without disclosing all the information about the benefits affair. provide what the House requested.

Grapperhaus wondered whether State Secretary Menno Snel (D66) of Finance would otherwise get away with not fully informing the House. “You know what, says Grapperhaus to Snel, together with Hoekstra I think along with you how you can get away with it and pretend that you have sent a statement of facts after all.”

Sylvana Simons of BIJ1 tweets: “When reading the minutes of the Council of Ministers regarding the allowance scandal, I really only think: realize that the same people are now managing the corona pandemic …”
