Former hard-line integration minister Rita Verdonk set up her new populist political movement Trots op Nederland (proud of the Netherlands) after being booted out of the Liberal party in 2007. TON was officially launched in April 2008. Its logo resembles a football badge to emphasis the ‘passion and pride’ that supporting the national team generates, says Verdonk. The party’s main focus is on preserving the national identity.
