Animal Party: Dutch Government Resembles Mugabe Government

Marianne Thieme, the faction leader of the Party for Animals in Dutch parliament has said that the Dutch government neglects citizen concerns as it is not holding a referendum on the European Union reforms. She compared this to the dictatorial behavior of the Mugabe government in Zimbabwe. The Dutch population had voted against the European constitution in a 2005 referendum. Thieme said that as there is no referendum over the new agreement, this shows that the government does not consider the opinion of the Dutch people.
