Even if she's a drunk, it doesn't account for her policies. Only a crackhead village idiot with a Napoleon complex and bipolar tendencies could have come up with that stuff and expected it to work. If she does take seats from the Dear Peroxide Leader, all the better. (But maybe he needs to become PM with the resulting totally embarrassment of NL internationally and be such the abject failure domestically, that parts of the electorate stop supporting him.)
D66 pulled the plug on Verdonk since no one else had the balls, and they're now back in the saddle again. PvDA's still sinking in the polls.

No sh!t, Sherlock.
Last i saw Wilders was not riding particularly high in Amsterdam, especially compared with (say) the Rotterdam/Den Haag conurbation - the traditional home of racism and xenophobia in Nederland.
Recently Verdonk sobered up long enough to attempt to re-launch her 'Trots op Nederland' party in Amsterdam. Voters were promised a meet-and-greet with the party muckety-mucks, and free refreshments. Precisely 34 people showed up. So it looks like the Nazis won't be gaining a toe-hold in Amsterdam at least anytime soon.
