Hero Brinkman to go it alone at general election

Wednesday 25 April 2012

Hero Brinkman, a former MP for the anti-immigration PVV, is to contest the next general election with his own party - the OBP, or independent citizens' party.

Brinkman left the PVV last month in protest at the lack of democracy within the party and the 'undue focus' on various ethnic minority groups. Brinkman told a television talk show on Tuesday evening he expects to field at least 15 candidates.

Do you really think the nation will vote for an ex corrupt cop who got his kicks from violence in the front lines while being a riot cop?

Lack of democracy? lack of what? A movement (not a party), with only one member authorized to take decisions. With secret funding, (nobody knows the funders, neither what funders expect in exchange for their money). A movement that brought convicted offenders to our Parliament as MPs. A movement which share parliamentary group with Neo-Nazis and Neofascists parties at European Parliament. A movement that support measures on economy which have strangled our growth and fall in recession. As well as unemployment growth, international diplomatic conflicts, and economic boycott on Dutch products. What more does he want?

Well, the tipical Wilders' crew.
