Trouble with Limburgers or Belgians? Complaint websites spring up

Friday 10 February 2012

The decision by the PVV to set up a website where people can report problems with central and eastern Europeans has spawned a flood of other websites poking fun at the anti-immigration party's project.

Take Meldpunt Belgen which focuses on 'mass immigration' from Belgium and the problems caused by 'litter (French fry wrappings)'. Its website points out that popular Belgian television character Pixie Plop has a full-face beard.

There is also Meldpunt Limburgers, which parodies the PVV site and asks: 'Are you being caused problems by Limbos, have you lost a job to one of those down-an-outs from the south with a high alcohol intake? Is one of them trying to rule the country?' PVV leader Geert Wilders comes from Limburg.

Meldpunt Nederlanders is open for complaints about Dutch people and politicians who are guilty of 'boorish behaviour, hypocrisy and verbal violence'. 'The Netherlands has a unique culture which needs to be protected,' the website states.

And Meldpunt Waardevolle Gezelligheid asks: 'Have you had a wild night out with some Poles. Have you employed hard-working people from eastern Europe whom you are very happy with. Do you have jolly evenings with your central and eastern European neighbours?'.

Have you come across a similar site or started one of your own? Let us know using the comment form below.

Great work! I hope to see more of these clever rebuttals! We know the PM won't be giving any soon.

Taking Wilders as an example I'd have thought the "boorish behaviour, hypocrisy & verbal violence" was this unique culture.
And GW is doing a great job in promoting it.

well one thing is for sure, we don't need a site to make complaints about the guv, next election will be enough.

A nice joke, considering all this bare nonsens about nationalities. Differences in habits and thinking between Ireland and Bulgaria are so minimal that one can only conclude that there are Europeans instead of English, Swedish and Greek nationalities. Language used to be the main difference, until the post-war popular spread of English. So what else could there be, for heaven's sake?

Wilders is a disgrace. I think the dutch who supported him at the last election are beginning to see this too

I already reported my PVV supporting neighbour from growing weed and being general racist towards me and others on the street.Thank you for this chance as the police refuse to even log in my complaint even though i have video evidence of his racism and drug dealing.
