Carriages, corona, crime & culture

Geli & Margaret 16/09/2020

Besides a brief Prinsjesdag Primer in which we learn why the King’s golden carriage has been put out of action, Geli and Margaret take a closer look at just what was promised during yesterday’s speech to mark the opening of parliament.

Proposed changes to policing around Amsterdam CS, the rising Corona statistics and a push to get us back on public transport all get the Kearns and Carney treatment before talk turns towards  culture – remember that? Find out what’s on offer this weekend – it might be more than you think!
