The modern PVV party is 'more dangerous' than the 1930s NSB Dutch National Socialist Movement, a senior Dutch parliamentarian has told Trouw newspaper.
Sybe Schaap, a philosopher and VVD member of the Dutch senate, told Trouw on Tuesday that 'if [leader Geert] Wilders gets power it could sometimes get very nasty.'
At the moment, the PVV has one member – its founder Geert Wilders – and all decisions are taken through him. Nor does the party organise congresses for supporters to discuss policy.
Schaap said that there is too little pushback against the PVV, which has been running top in the polls since last year and is campaigning for a ban of the Koran, mosques, Islamic schools and closure of refugee centres at the 2017 general election.
