    "Ministers agree to get tough on dual nationality, also for the Dutch"

    [SIZE=1]Friday 02 March 2012[/SIZE]

    Ministers on Friday decided to press ahead with legislation aimed at reducing the number of people with dual nationality, despite widespread opposition.

    The legislation will require everyone who becomes Dutch to give up their original nationality if legally possible. Dutch nationals who take a second nationality will also automatically lose their Dutch passports.

    New Dutch nationals will also have a family income of at least the minimum wage and show that they have at least two years work experience or have some sort of professional qualification.

    (nothing will change for those already in possession of dual nationality btw)

    "Dutch are pessimistic about future but happy with their own lives"

    Two-thirds of the Dutch are pessimistic about the future, largely due to the economic problems, according to new quarterly research from the government's socio-cultural think-tank SCP.

    If its not legally possible, would they be denied Dutch nationality or just allowed the dual nationality?

    Some countries do not allow you to give up your nationality voluntarily, ergo: you then get to keep it while gaining Dutch nationality.

    Tax evasion is a national passtime.

    "Handshake Muslim loses court case"

    Rotterdam council was right not to offer lawyer Mohammed Enait the job of client manager after he refused to shake hands with women, a court in The Hague said on Tuesday afternoon.

    Enait had applied for the job at the social services department but said he would not shake hands with women on religious grounds. However, he would greet them in another respectful fashion, he said.

    When he was refused the job, Enait brought a civil case against Rotterdam council, saying the rejection was religious discrimination.

    The court found the refusal to shake women's hands 'unacceptable' and that Enait is ignoring the equality between men and women, reports news website nu.nl. In addition, it would damage the relationship between the council and its clients.

    In 2009, Enait was in the news for refusing to stand up in court when judges entered the room on the grounds that in Islam all men are equal.
