    The election was interesting here for a variety of reasons. Yes Groenlinks (the Green Party) gained a lot, however The PvdA (Labour Party) had huge losses. They polled in Amsterdam at the same amount as DENK (Means think, but is a radical left party favoured by immigrants). The PVV (Wilders' party) have gained and the next 4 years we'll see how it progresses. VVD won but they took huge losses. Dutch politics has definitely moved further right than previously for sure despite the gain for Groenlinks.

      Can you link to the video this happened on?
      The video is quite interesting as a discussion and how well rehearsed the Muslim apologetics is. This is at Speakers Corner and he uses old debunked scientific miracles of the Quran as part of his script. It is really disengenous, he is lying, and he knows it.

      European leaders have welcomed the result of the Netherlands election, which saw the anti-immigration party of Geert Wilders fail to become the largest in parliament.
      Prime Minister Mark Rutte's centre-right VVD won by some margin.
      For Francois Hollande of France it was a "clear victory against extremism", while German Chancellor Angela Merkel hailed a "good day for democracy".
      The vote was closely watched ahead of elections in France and Germany.
      The Netherlands was seen by many as a bellwether for how populist parties will perform in those polls.

      Of course they will both want to address it as a failure for the right.. it suits their agenda in the run up to May and Sept.... but it is a definite shift to the right, PVV went from nothing to 20.... a few more of the inevitable IS inspired shootings or well publicised atrocities and that could easily shift again.... the incumbent won the most seats, but he lost 25% of his share, Merkel et al don't want that stat banded about too much.

      Of course they have welcome the decision, because these European leaders can't admit they have ****ed things up. They don't have a bloody clue who is in Europe now, better to swing things around and blame people like Wilders for their **** up, than working out the difference between a moderate or hard line / conservative follower of the religion.
