At least for now they do.

This blog yesterday featured a story about Interior Minister Guusje ter Horst blocking the appointment of Mr. Teun Visscher as a police manager. This on account of him being a white male.

The news just came out that Mr. Visser is going to be confirmed as Police District Chief of the South Holland South (Ridderkerk) district after all.

This on account of heavy pressure on the Interior Minister whipped up by populist Dutch media such as newspaper "De Telegraaf" and weblog geenstijl.

For reasons which are probably entirely opportunistic these media managed to get the decision reversed.

The headline on geenstijl was: White Man - Guusje ter Horst: 1-0.
