    OT - what a difference.

    The more time that passes by, the more I admire Dutch PM Mark Rutte.

    The news leaked out yesterday that, in the midst of him dealing with all the CV-19 difficulties, he has had more to deal with. He has been his elderly mother's carer for 30 odd years. She died in early May this year. The funeral was May 13th. He carried on with his job whilst arranging Mam's funeral and it never got out into the public domain, until yesterday. Mam was 96.

    No sympathy seeking. Kept private business private and got on with his job. We now know the reason his planned press conference of May 13th was a day early.
