Every PM’s nightmare question time

with 10 comments

The one where you dismiss a question with snideness – especially because you think the MP questioning you is a young twit who can be swatted away – only for your answer to bite you in the backside, powered by that MP’s knowledge.

Such happened the other day in the Dutch Parliament when a newly elected MP, Gideon van Meijeren, asked the PM, Mark Rutte, a relatively simple question: what did he think of a book called Covid-19: The Great Reset, written by one Klaus Schwab, Chairman and Founder of the World Economic Forum (WEF).

Apparently the book’s basic thrust is that democracy is fairly useless, what’s needed is a planet run by a highly educated technocracy, and that we’re already seeing this in practice with the Covid-19 pandemic, thus making it the ideal opportunity to start it working in practice.

The PM chose the standard approach in response, which was to snark about conspiracy theories while saying that he knew nothing of the book.

Unfortunately for him, young Mr van Meijeren was ready for this. He had a letter written to Mr Schwab, congratulating him on its, “hopeful analysis for a better future”. The letter being from Mr Rutte.

Now that is truly Speaking Truth To Power, especially since Rutte, like every other Western leader, has gloried in using the pandemic to seize and wield ever more power in the name of Public Health.

You can watch the link on Rumble here. Pay particular attention to the reactions of the young lady behind van Meijeren as he dices up the PM. It’ll make your day.

(Grrr – it seems some people can’t see the Rumble link so… here’s the frigging YouTube link to the same video. YouTube are definitely NOT speaking Truth To Power nowadays but instead acting as State enforcers with their censorship. Assholes.)
