I should not be surprised that snow removal in Amsterdam is a politically charged and controversial issue. I think running with long, sharp scissors has less of a chance of poking your eye than is likely from the myriads of fingers pointing blame. I see every stakeholder in this losing again and again the more this continues. I find it surreal to listen to how faults for the problem lies wholly in the random nature of the storms and winter weather. As if winter were not long enough already, we get another drama.
