GREAT news on the first day of European elections.
In PVV's very first run for European Parliament, the anti-immigration, anti-EU party of Geert Wilders is running huge--so far looking as if it will have started out on Election Day with zero seats and ended up with four of the Netherlands' 25 seats--the second largest bloc of Dutch seats.
One of PVV's policies is to oppose Turkish accession to the EU. As Wilders puts it:
"Should Turkey as an Islamic country be able to join the European Union? We are the only party in Holland that says, it is an Islamic country, so no, not in 10 years, not in a million years," he said.
The clarity. The forthrightness. If I hadn't already said goodbye to Mitt, I would urge him to take copious notes.
According to The Telegraph: "The three main Dutch parties all lost seats on the first day of voting across the 27-country European Union, the exit polls showed....
"If the results are confirmed in the Netherlands, they will alarm EU leaders, who fear a low turnout could boost fringe and extremist parties and could further undermine confidence in the bloc's leadership."
And that would be just too darn bad...!
