Last quote by Don Bijl

Everything could be rationalised away. In Purmerend, there are a lot of people who moved out of Amsterdam because, well, they felt their neighbourhoods had changed. Moroccan families had moved there; their streets no longer felt the same. Now they're here and they don't want it to happen again. All our surveys show people are happy here – good social provision, no real poverty, minimal crime. But some people in Purmerend will vote for the PVV not because they are unhappy, but because they are happy, and afraid of losing it.
Don Bijl has most recently been quoted in an article called 'We do reasonable' - so why are Dutch voters abandoning the centre ground?. Don Bijl said, “Everything could be rationalised away.
