Proposed Kingdom Act: Bosman to amend Statute for the Netherlands Kingdom in order to make Independence possible for Curaçao & Sint Maarten, just like Aruba

I thought it was strange that the Dutch 2de Kamer got together to discuss the Kingdom, which involves the Antilles yesterday. But the only video available from yesterday’s meeting was the 2 minute clip I just posted with Ronald retiring, and everyone smooching each others butts. So I did some digging and here are the minutes of yesterday’s meeting. Every other video was posted yesterday, but this one. I translated to English… READ CAREFULLY ST MAARTEN.
