Mark Rutte, leader of the opposition Liberal Party (VVD), thinks that the sole reason for imposing the environment taxes on packaging, diesel fuel and air travel is to find additional ways to taxes citizens. He said that the government’s claim that these taxes serve the environment is a lie. He called Finance Minister Wouter Bos one of the worst ministers of finance in recent years.
