SO couple of things happening in the Netherlands that might be of interest to a wider audience.
First of: Verdonk will not lead the liberal conservative VVD. Mark Rutte (our very own Boy King) beat her 51% to 46%.
Then there's a new political party on the Dutch electoral scene. The Naastenliefde, Vrijheid en Diversiteit (Charity, Freedom and Diversity) party. Main campaigning issues: lowering the age of consent to 12, allow porn acting from the age of 16 and legalisation of possession of child porn. Read the Expatica entry to fully appreciate the depths of deprivation from which these people rose up to the surface.
Funny thing though: This isn't news to the rest of the world. According to Geenstijl.nl Italy made a solemn promise to leave the EU if the NVD becomes a reality(1). The German MSM is all over the story. The sound and fury on the blogs is rightfully deafening. And in the Netherlands one hears crickets chirp. Most of the MSM haven't touched this one.
I don't know the reason for that sudden coyness. Are they too ashamed to openly talk about this abomination? Or are they downplaying this story to keep the general populace from finding out the extent to which the rot has already eaten itself into the heart of Dutch society?
One is almost inclined to say: Glad I don't live there anymore.
(1) If your there, check out this interview with one of the initiators of the NVD. Why is it that every time some of these people enter he daylight of media exposure they seem to do their utmost to look the part? It really beggars belief. Think the interviewer felt like taking a shower after that?
