Dutch Parliament re-runs The Longest Day

The new net neutrality law will not be voted on until 21 June: "The Lower House of Dutch Parliament has postponed voting on the Telecommunications Law by one week to 21 June, because the Socialist Party wants more time to study the amendment over cookies... the SGP has also submitted a sub-amendment, saying provider should be able to provide upstream filtered internet, countering an earlier proposal which stated providers must completely respect net neutrality. Negotiations are ongoing behind the scenes. Market watchers think that while the Socialist Party might support the sub-amendment, the rest will not."
