The IND has announced a new points system for British people who would like to remain in the Netherlands after December 31st. It’s felt that this points system is the fairest way to ensure that people who truly love the Netherlands can be allowed to stay here and contribute positively to Dutch society and the economy.

The Brexit points system. How did you do?
Less than eighty points?
Sorry hoor! Time to rot op naar je eigen kut Brexit land.
More than eighty points?
Goed zo! Now learn to speak Dutch and remember that ‘here in Holland’ the Dutch are always right and you’re only tolerated, so know your place!
No Brits were hurt during the writing of this post. Happy April fools day!
