Trouble with Limburgers or Belgians? Complaint websites spring up

The decision by the PVV to set up a website where people can report problems with central and eastern Europeans has spawned a flood of other websites poking fun at the anti-immigration party’s project.


Take Meldpunt Belgen which focuses on ‘mass immigration’ from Belgium and the problems caused by ‘litter (French fry wrappings)’. Its website points out that popular Belgian television character Pixie Plop has a full-face beard.
There is also Meldpunt Limburgers, which parodies the PVV site and asks: ‘Are you being caused problems by Limbos, have you lost a job to one of those down-an-outs from the south with a high alcohol intake? Is one of them trying to rule the country?’ PVV leader Geert Wilders comes from Limburg.
Meldpunt Nederlanders is open for complaints about Dutch people and politicians who are guilty of ‘boorish behaviour, hypocrisy and verbal violence’. ‘The Netherlands has a unique culture which needs to be protected,’ the website states.
And Meldpunt Waardevolle Gezelligheid asks: ‘Have you had a wild night out with some Poles. Have you employed hard-working people from eastern Europe whom you are very happy with. Do you have jolly evenings with your central and eastern European neighbours?’.
