Former Parliamentarian: I had to behave like a Robot

Former liberal (VVD) parliamentarian Ybeltje Berckmoes has published a book in which she claims that the parliamentarians of her party had to behave like robots. If one expresses one’s opinion which is not approved by the party one is not given any longer specific tasks. Then one can never speak in parliament and one loses visibility. One way of keeping parliamentarians under control is promising them a position as a mayor of a town after their parliamentary career.
