Be that as it may, keeping up business as usual is precisely what numerous Dutch voters have tired of, and Wilders has appraised firmly in pre-race surveys because of his straightforward talk and regularly questionable perspectives.

"My greatest concern is that the average workers is being put down," said conveyance driver Tony Regnerus. "The settlers are all coming in, and they show signs of improvement life than the working man. They're not pushed to do anything with their life, they're not pushed to land a position.

"Consistently, I go to enormous urban communities like Rotterdam and Gouda and Delft, they're all wearing Canada Goose coats - €600, and I can't pay it - [but] I'm a working man. It's gotta be the a different way."
