Water Off a Dutch Back

On 17th March the Netherlands will to the polls in the 2021 general election. In this episode of World Review from the New Statesman, Emily Tamkin in Washington DC and Ido Vock in Berlin are joined by Pepijn Bergsen, a research fellow in the Europe Programme at Chatham House, to discuss the upcoming Dutch elections. Will Geert Wilders improve his far-right party's performance from 2017? Is the coronavirus pandemic and the EU's troubled vaccine rollout having an impact in the polls? And what, if anything, can flap the unflappable Dutch?
