Dutch Conservative VVD aims to get tough Islamic ‘marriage migration’, rules out coalition with Labour PvdA
More Security, Less Immigration
Four weeks from today the people of the Netherlands will vote in a general election. Geert Wilders and the PVV are poised to make significant gains in Parliament, despite the firewall erected against them by the Dutch state media and the political elite. Â Read further…
“In the biggest cities, 60 percent of the Moroccan men are jobless. In Rotterdam, one in two Moroccan men have already been arrested twice.” “Increasingly large numbers of partners are arriving from the hinterland of Turkey and the Rif mountains (in Morocco) Â Once again new generations of illiterates who do not speak the language. They divorce after three years, and then the next partner is again brought in from abroad.”
Wilders’ PVV party, unfortunately are not leading theÂ polls, but it is clear people are listening, and more are willing to act to change this heading-for-the-cliff’s-edge policies.
NIS News/Islamization Watch/ THE HAGUE, 11/05/10 – Conservative (VVD) leader Mark Rutte believes a coalition between his party and Labour (PvdA) is not possible. The differences between the two parties appear to be too great, he says in an interview with De Dagelijkse Standaard website.
According to Rutte, there is “an enormous risk of a new CDA (Christian democrat)-PvdA cabinet” because there is a “great distance” between the VVD and PvdA. “Such a cabinet (between VVD and PvdA) is nearly impossible to form. We never rule parties out, but if I look at the programme (of the PvdA), I see it as a very long debarring letter. It is reminiscent of ‘The longest suicide letter in history’, the ultra-left election programme of the British Labour Party in 1983, which led to a big victory for the Conservatives.”
The polls say the PvdA will do well in the elections, Rutte acknowledges. “It will be very difficult for us to come to some agreement with this PvdA, so if the PvdA is the biggest (party), there is a huge chance that there will be another CDA cabinet with PvdA after all. With the result that nothing will change and this old group will just come back again.”
Rutte confirmed suggestions by the interviewer that the VVD has become tougher on immigration compared with 2006, when he came in as party leader. “That is correct. We are now going a step further. (…) More must be done, especially about marriage migration.”
“Increasingly large numbers of partners are arriving from the hinterland of Turkey and the Rif mountains (in Morocco). Once again new generations of illiterates who do not speak the language. They divorce after three years, and then the next partner is again brought in from abroad.” Additionally, since 2006, “the asylum-seeker problem has been worsened enormously by the cabinet that took office after that.”
Rutte wants to do what the Danes do and more to restrict immigration. “You must be 24, earn 120 percent of the legal minimum wage, pay a deposit; no dole for the first 10 years and you can only bring a partner in from abroad once. Only then can you do something about the enormous group already in the Netherlands.”
Unlike the Danes, Rutter does want to keep marriage immigration from Western countries relatively simple. “To my mind it is different when you bring in someone from America. We will have to consider how it could all be arranged legally.”
Rutte is no supporter of a specific brake on immigration from Muslim countries, as urged by the Party for Freedom (PVV). “The biggest problem in the Netherlands with crime is, for example, with the Antilleans in the Netherlands. There, the first Koran still has to be imported. There are also large parts of Africa and South America from which I would also find immigration questionable.”
According to Rutte, “the figures are terrible” regarding immigration problems. “In the biggest cities, 60 percent of the Moroccan men are jobless. In Rotterdam, one in two Moroccan men have already been arrested twice. I know that in the case of Antillean men in the Amsterdam district of Bijlmer, three-quarters have a criminal record.”
