After seven years as the EU-correspondent of Dutch magazine Elsevier, Jelte Wiersma has returned to the Netherlands to cover Dutch affairs. In this episode of the Brussels Report podcast, he looks back on his experience of covering EU politics, discussing the following topics with editor Pieter Cleppe:

– The attitude of Dutch public opinion towards the European Union. Is there more eurosceptic sentiment and should eurocrats worry?

– To what extent do unaffordable house prices in the Netherlands cause people to criticise the euro and the ECB?

– What’s the relationship between Germany and the Netherlands?

– What can the Dutch government do in practical terms to close the gap between Dutch citizens and the EU?
