Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
To Nomad's excellent analysis of Dutch state of affairs. As to Geert Wilders' one-man party, his "foreign-policy" in one-issue only and combines this with his Islamophobic rhetoric and won't divulge who his financial backers are. On the domestic issues Wilders is a socialist and on the left of the political spectrum because that's where a major part of his voter base is. Wilders hopefully has success with his new book in the States and follows Ayaan Hirsi Ali to a right-wing think tank soon.

Particularly interesting the fact that the minority cabinet of Rutte to push through his EU austerity measure had only 63 seats over according to last week's polls. The 48 hour coalition in parliament has a majority both in the Tweede Kamer and the new polls.

"But I will not let myself be reduced to silence."
