Geert Wilders is the Dutch politician who has dared to stand against the Islamisation of Holland. He was to speak in Australia late last year but had to postpone because the Gillard government stalled his visa. A far better option for Labor's dwindling political fortunes would have been to take Wilders on board and give McTernin the boot.
Amsterdam is to create villages where nuisance neighbours and anti-social tenants will be exiled from the city and rehoused in caravans or containers with "minimal services" under constant police supervision.
The new camps have been dubbed "scum villages" because the plan echoes a proposal from Geert Wilders, the leader of a populist right-wing party, for special units to deal with persistent troublemakers.
"Repeat offenders should be forcibly removed from their neighbourhood and sent to a village for scum," he suggested last year. "Put all the trash together."
