Politics Cafe: I curse, therefore I am

The Politics Cafe on the 12th of April was about language in the political debate. Politicians frequently receive threatening letters and cursewords are regularly used. Is this a cultural development? And will this affect Dutch politics?

Author of 'Een waanzinnig gaaf land' and columnist for NRC Handelsblad Bas Heijne and D66-parliamentarian Alexander Pechtold discussed these questions.

Hanke Bruins Slot, CDA-parliamentarian, read a column in the 'Haagse Zeepkist'.

Please note that this event was held in Dutch.
