The Volkspartij voor Vrijheid en Democratie (People’s Party for Freedom and Democracy) is a tricky party to place outside the Dutch political sphere. Supportive of the free market as far as the economy is concerned, the party is traditionally liberal on social issues. However, Rutte is currently attempting win back voters who have defected to the PVV with a tough stance on immigration and recently wrote an open letter calling on troublemakers in society to ‘act normal or leave’. websiteAll typical untranslatable Dutch words and expressions translated in the Dictionairy of Dutchness
