    Geweldige commentaren via Wynia’s Week. Ik herinner me – kunt u nagaan! -nog steeds uw genadeloze analyse van de Nederlandse politie en het indelen van urenstaten (NRC/Handelsblad): persoonlijke verzorging, compensatie extra-gewerkte uren etc.etc.
    Het zegt veel voor het opinieklimaat in Nederland dat u niet meer schrijft voor NRC/Handelsblad maar – hulde! – voor Wynia’s Week.
