  • Wat een geweldig gebaar van de Koningin! Zou die regering nou niet eens een keer hun stupiditeit inzien voordat ze de cultuur in dit land naar de verdommenis helpen?

  • It’s about time someone is willing to speak up over the catastrophic effects these cuts have had on Music in Holland. Good for you HM Beatrix!
