“I think it's all very childish. We're adults, come on. We're taking on a very important task and then we'll do it. I really don't understand it. Just put this energy into you.” Positive things,” says the BBB leader. “This makes me sigh deeply. People are in trouble, there are no homes, and we are just wasting our time chatting. The Netherlands is completely tired of all this bickering, all the bickering between us,” she thinks.
Van der Plas understands Wilders' tendency to sometimes take out frustration on X, because she's done it herself in the past. “I understand, but get over it. Grow some balls. “Put yourself aside for a moment and do what you promised: put the Dutch first.”
Since the tweet about the Catholic infiltration, Wilders has become calmer towards his potential coalition partners in X. He still knows how to find his keyboard on other topics.
Van der Plas sees himself as the “link” between the three fighters, Wilders, Umzigt and Wesselguz. She wants to be “the nun at the Catholic school I went to.” “By that I mean I want to keep the class together. I say: stop all the bickering now, now we will work together. Boys, calm down, don't bicker so much, get back to basics. I think I have a good role to play there.”
She points out that it is also working: “Plastirk included the interim phase, in which constitutional issues are discussed with all four parties, in the report. I included this in the discussions and the other three agreed to it as well.”
Van der Plas very much hopes that the four parties will reach an agreement. He added, “The worst thing that could happen is that there are new elections. We say to the voter: You did not do your duty, you voted for the wrong party.”
But she will not participate at any cost: “If Khairat says: closing all Islamic schools must be part of the coalition agreement, then I will not participate.” Involuntary expropriation of farmers' land based on nitrogen rules is also a breaking point for the BBB.
The conversation between Margje Fikse (EO) and Caroline van der Plas will be broadcast on Monday evening from 9:30pm to 11:00pm.
