Hero Brinkman to go it alone at general election

Hero Brinkman, a former MP for the anti-immigration PVV, is to contest the next general election with his own party – the OBP, or independent citizens’ party.


Brinkman left the PVV last month in protest at the lack of democracy within the party and the ‘undue focus’ on various ethnic minority groups. Brinkman told a television talk show on Tuesday evening he expects to field at least 15 candidates.
