Verdonk plays prime minister in kids film

Nationalist politician Rita Verdonk has a role as prime minister in the new family film ‘Sinterklaas and the Secret of the Big Book’, according to the Telegraaf.

The MP has made protecting Dutch traditions such as Sinterklaas and his Zwartepieten (black Peters) a central issue in her campaigning. She feels they are under attack from politicially-correct campaigners who object to the role of Piet.
The film will hit the cinemas in October.
