Such excellent news!
In a previous post I lamented the deplorable lack of a national birth date of the Netherlands.
Three years later, the news reports that our former Prime Minister Ruud Lubbers has been asked to lead the celebrations of our country’s Bicentennial in a few years. Not only is it obvious that my blog about the issue has made its way to our Head of State, Queen Beatrix; she obviously has taken my recommendation about the birthdate of the nation to heart, even including the confusion about what date it should be: the celebrations will be held somewhere between 2013 and 2015.
