It seems we are having new ministers every other day. They all consistently fail to mention that they have a demissionairy status as we have had no functioning government since January and a new one is not in sight.

The VVD minister that she is replacing is moving to work for a lobby group related to her work. This would have been illegal until 2019 but the government quietly changed the rules. In the European Union and in a lot of other European countries this would be forbidden due to fears of corruption.

The Government is outgoing but the coalition still has a majority. Problem is that the relations in said coalition have changed: two parties were victorious, one party got a fatal electoral blow. But statistically they still hold the majority. Before the elections 77 of the 150 seats, after the elections 78 of the 150 seats. But the composition is totally different.

So yes, the current Government is outgoing, at the same time, as long as there is no new Government, they have enough votes in Parliament. Constitutionally the proposals of the Government have sufficient support. These days the Cabinet is preparing the Budget 2022 as if it is a fully missionary Government.

Three Ambassadors: two neighbours (Belgium and Germany) and two kingdoms (Belgium and Sweden).

Indeed, a continuation of the present government was always the most evident way forward but apparently irreconsilable differences has popped up all of a sudden. Anyway, it is likely that a record will be broken as they only have to stall for 50 days more to break the 2017 record of 225 days.

I believe it is the Swedish anthem that is played.

If there is a jacquet and white tie rental in The Hague, they do good business with all the ambassadors, ministers, state secretaries, justices, state counsels, state auditors, etc. whom are received by the King conforming to a dresscode.

Ki. Willem-Alexander receives an amount of 4,7 milion euro of public funding every 5 years for the maintenance of nature reserve "Het Loo".
For other people in a similar situation this means that they have to allow entry to the nature reserve to the public. The King until now closes Het Loo for 3 months a year.
On 08-09 it was announced that Dutch government is discussing a proposal to start treating the King's domain the same as other people would be treated, so he would not be allowed to close the nature reserve any more, or loose the public funding for it.

Today, 09-09, the Government has confirmed that the King intends to close Het Loo this year, from next wednesday until christmas.
