Amsterdam alderman Pieter Litjen's (VVD) plan to introduce a toll for cars entering Amsterdam city center, was met by confusion and outrage from national politicians. The national VVD is also morally opposed to this plan, AD reports.
State Secretary Sharon Dijksma of Infrastructure gave a remarkable answer to parliamentary questions by a PVV MP about NS' decision to use gender-neutral terms in their announcements.
PVV parliamentarian Roy van Aalst wanted to know hom many people are working on implementing the new gender-neutral form of address of "dear travelers" in NS announcements, according to AD.
The PVV is vehemently against rail company NS' plan to stop using "ladies and gentlemen" in their announcements and replace it with gender-neutral "best travelers". PVV leader Geert Wilders tweeted that this plan is "madness" and that the NS lost its way.
"NS completely lost its way. Rather make sure the trains run on time than gender neutral communication. Madness", Wilders tweeted.
