With the summer break looming, we decided to pick out our favourite
examples of ‘ophef’ – those tornados of outrage that blow up on social
media only to be forgotten within 24 hours – from the year so far. It
was also a week in which Mark Rutte got caught up in another Trump
whirlwind at Nato, Frisian water engineers proved to be more useful
than Elon Musk, the king faced a possible fine for flying drones in
his back garden and a Dutchwoman reached the quarter-finals of
Wimbledon for the first time in 40 years.
