Local Labour leader quits after anti-immigrant slur

The man charged with heading the Labour party’s provincial election campaign in Gelderland has stood down after allegedly making racist comments about Moroccans and Turks.


In a discussion about the population drain in rural areas, Rob Spiegelenberg reportedly said that if the Dutch borders are opened, ‘then we’ll get all those Turks and Moroccans again and we know that they breed like crazy’.
Officially, Spiegelenburg has quit because of pressure of work.
