Comment Hague Time (Score 1) 242

The Dutch government did not make legally enforceable promises to their own people. They made promises to other sovereign states. In other words, it is up to the other parties of the contract (the other countries) to force the Dutch government to follow through on the promises, not some activist judge.

100% correct. On to the International Court of Justice then... in The Hague. Oh the irony!
