Geert Wilders’ party to boycott press bar

Geert Wilders anti-immigration party PVV is to boycott the press bar in the parliamentary complex in the Hague following last week’s headline-grabbing incident involving MP Hero Brinkman.

Brinkman allegedly hit a barman who refused to serve him because he was drunk. The MP, a former police man, later admitted he has a drink problem.
Wilders described the Nieuwspoort press centre as a ‘terrible club’ where ‘terrible journalists’ hang out, Nos tv reported.
