Now, of course, this could be just the news media spinning what Dr. Mills has actually said. On the other hand, it would appear that he has form in making comments that make me want to bang my head against the wall…

Update: Some people think that Dr. Mills has a point. As I commented on Jean’s post, I still don’t buy it…

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
