“One of their own reporters and columnists, however, saw it differently. “Kinda odd that an election in which a far-right party comes 2nd & the winner aped its rhetoric is hailed as triumph 4 moderates,” tweeted Tom Nuttall.

Mr. Nuttall is not the first to point out how Mr. Wilders has influenced political discourse in the Netherlands. One week before the vote, the mainstream conservative party demanded all school children sing and “respect” the national anthem.”

Looks like a Wilders win to me.
