For the non-Dutch: the above is literally translated to English and gives an indication of how crazee the Dutch really are :-D

I beg your pardon some of my best friends are Dutch.

Feyenoord  is a soccer team from Rotterdam. They won the championship for the first time since 1998(!) ahead of their great rivals Ajax Amsterdam.
A bit like Yankees/Red Sox.

A fly in the ointment? After my third home country I just think that some nations are more intelligent than others (not in IQ or number of PhDs that a common halfwit can get these days), whereas the nationality doesn't make much difference.

Indeed I can! My ex-neighbour in Amsterdam is a tram driver and was on duty in his tram. He saw it all and the official news seems to be baloney.. He agrees thus with witnesses.  Let;s wait for the 8 0 clock news. 
//BTW your page link not working.

A police spokesman said it appeared that the driver may have been taken ill. ‘Of course we are carrying out further inquiries to rule out anything else,’ the spokesman told reporters.

Every routine accident that is assumed to be terrorism, is just another easy victory for the terrorists. And those that propagate fake news that an event is terrorism are aiding and abetting the terrorists.

Your words. You are missing my point.

Which is, premature and hasty conclusions..

Update: according to police the driver was diabetic which seems to explain what happened. Case seems to be closed..

The major of Amsterdam Eberhard van der Laan stepped down yesterday, he's terminally ill.

Today the people from Amsterdam came to his house to thank him, applaud him and sing typical Amsterdam songs.  Very empathic.
