Some 85% of 540 Polish nationals questioned about a complaints website set up by the anti-immigration PVV think it is discriminatory, Trouw reports at the weekend.
The website, launched last week, asks people to report problems with central and eastern Europeans, and juxtaposes its poll next to newspaper headlines such as ‘Eastern Europeans, increasingly criminal’.
In addition, 83% of those questioned think the Netherlands is less tolerant than they had expected. The poll was carried out for television current affairs show Debat op 2.
A DutchNews.nl poll of over 2,000 people shows almost 70% of its readers think the prime minister should take a stand against the PVV website, while 16% think the issue will damage the reputation of the Netherlands abroad.
The prime minister has so far refused to comment on the site, saying it is a matter for the PVV.
