The United Kingdom & Germany both failed (again) at Saturday's #Eurovision.

The German reaction: "For 2020, we need to think carefully about how we choose our song and artist"

The British reaction: "If we'd sent Gary Barlow or Elton John, we'd still have been last"

#UK #GER
I know I bang on about this but in the end it is all about the song. Best domestic chart positions:

NED - Number 1 in the Netherlands
ITA - Number 1 in Italy
SUI - Number 8 in Switzerland
NOR - Number 3 in Norway
SWE - Number 1 in Sweden

Great Britain - Number 72 - in Scotland
If the British don't like their song, why would they expect anyone else to like it?

Kicking-off #EMTA meeting sessions.
Great introduction given by @jaume_mateu, let’s enjoy!
#publictransport #sustainablemobility
New Regional Master Plan in the #BalearicIslands is willing to overturn #transportation planning from traffic to #mobility management.
"If you plan cities for cars and traffic, you get cars and traffic. If you plan for people and places, you get people and places". Fred Kent.
The last 16 years of planning and transportation management has been nearly useless to reduce private motorized vehicle trips mode share. It's time to change if we want to keep living on this precious islands.
Push and pull policies need to be implemented in the short term.

In all of #Goethe's writings, probably nothing is more relevant to the frightening idea of the #NewWorldOrder (#NWO) than the following exchange in the #tragedy #Egmont:

"A l b a. Du sagst mir was ich nicht hören sollte; auch ich bin fremd.
..
..
E g m o n t. Dass ich dir's sage, zeigt dir dass ich dich nicht meine.
A l b a. Und auch so wünscht' ich es nicht von dir zu hören. Der König sandte mich mit Hoffnung, daß ich hier den .Beistand des Adels finden würde. Der #König w i l l seinen Willen.
..
.. Der König hat nach tiefer Überlegung gesehen, was dem #Volk​e frommt; es kann nicht bleiben und gehen wie bisher. Des Königs Absicht ist, sie selbst ZU IHREM EIGNEN BESTEN EINZUSCHRÄNKEN, ihr eigenes Heil, wenn's sein muß, ihnen aufzudringen, die schädlichen #Bürger

🔥 My first academic article about the populist radical right in the media in #Belgium #Netherlands & #Luxembourg is out now in the International Journal of Press/Politics. 🔥
doi.org/10.1177/194016…
👇
I interviewed 46 EICs in the Benelux & asked them how they deal with right-wing #populism. Turns out that there are huge differences:
In Wallonia & Luxembourg, journalists adhere to strict ostracism. In Flanders & Netherlands, they are more accommodating.

Layman summary:
Best way to end 2018! It’s been a loooooong journey.
Thanks to all the interviewees who took time to speak to me @ADnl @telegraaf @volkskrant @nrc @trouw @NOS @100komma7 @Wort_LU @tageblatt_lu @demorgen @RTBF @destandaard @letzjournal @lesoir @WOXXHEBDO etc.

🔴 As we mark #HumanRightsDay, a devastating new @EURightsAgency Report on #Antisemitism in #Europe underscores how alarming situation has become.

You can read full report, most extensive in years, here: bit.ly/2Qovhjh

But thread below on some of these jarring figures:
@EURightsAgency @TimmermansEU @VeraJourova @kschnurbein @EUinIsrael @EGiaufretEU @IsraelinEU ➡️ 90% of Jews feel #Antisemitism has increased over past 5 years.

➡️ 89% of Jews think Antisemitism is most problematic on the internet & on social media.

➡️ 71% avoid Jewish symbols (e.g., kippah, Star of David, etc) in public things that could identify them as Jewish.

1/
@EURightsAgency @TimmermansEU @VeraJourova @kschnurbein @EUinIsrael @EGiaufretEU @IsraelinEU ➡️ 85% of Jews consider #Antisemitism to be the biggest social or political problem in their home country;

➡️ 28% of respondents have been harassed at least once in the past year, with those being visibly Jewish most effected;

I have just read this column written by Dutch officials from the Ministry of Finance on Eurozone reform "A more stable EMU does not require a central fiscal capacity" | VOX, CEPR Policy Portal voxeu.org/article/more-s… Here my thoughts... (thread)...
Needless to say that the position of the officials from the Ministry of Finance of the Netherlands is diametrically opposed to what we have written @voxeu voxeu.org/article/beyond… and which emanates from the view of the 22 Spanish experts on the Euro realinstitutoelcano.org/wps/portal/rie…
This debate is of course interesting because it defines broadly the positions of the #Netherlands and #Spain in the debate on Eurozone reform. Remember we had the Eurogroup meeting this week and we will have the definitive Euro summit on the current package of reforms next week

I want to talk a minute about how #Brexit is viewed by most of the #Dutch here in the #Netherlands.

1/
The #Dutch are mostly bewildered by #Brexit and why anyone would want to leave.

We do have a small EU critical faction in parliament (PVV+FvD=32 seats out of 150), but 4/5ths of the electorate are either uncaring or moderately to rabidly pro EU.

home.noties.nl/peil/

2/
Our #economy stands to take quite a hit from Brexit. Up to a few percent, even.

economics.rabobank.com/publications/2…

This is seen as a betrayal by most #Dutch, who take the
health of our economy very seriously, especially after supporting Britain's liberal ideas in the #EU

If the #Netherlands do block #Albania’s EU negotiations they’ll only be confirming what has so far been talked about only in hushed voices: there is no “Western Balkans 6”, there’s a “Western Balkans 2”. ALB, MK, BiH, KOS do not have membership prospects — not now, maybe never.
France & the Netherlands are merely out ahead of the pack. But it’s been clear for sometime that the Brussels establishment only has a credible commitment to Serbia & Montenegro. Bringing them into the fold, some believe makes membership for the other four a moot point.
As I describe in my book, logic is there’s enough of a political infrastructure to “contain/maintain” any potential chaos at acceptable levels (for the EU) in these 4 states, while “normalizing” relations w the 2 who have historically been architects of the worst troubles.

#storytime: [Thread] The dark sides of “social” enterprises - #Ableism in disguise

The other day, I was referred to the owner a social enterprise in order to apply job in my profession. The org seemed impressed by my portfolio and I eventually got invited to a job interview.
It all sounded promising and I was excited to meet with the company. Everything went well until they asked about my expectations. I was a bit surprised, since I was already in the job interview, but I highlighted that I’m looking for employment or at least continuous remote work.
Much to my shock, the only thing this organization had to offer was a “sheltered workshop”, where I would be working for free and maybe one day, some employer might hire me on a subsidized job, where I can only be paid minimum wage.
