Anti-Islam leader Geert Wilders leads Dutch election polls as campaign officially kicks off today after he predicted a 'Patriotic Spring' for Europe

    Geert Wilders, a Eurosceptic, anti-immigration fan of Trump, has dubbed the March 15 parliamentary election the start of a 'Patriotic Spring' in Europe 
    Wilders and his Party for Freedom has led in opinion polls for the past two years
    His main rival is Prime Minister Mark Rutte of the conservative VVD Party
    The two announced on Wednesday they will face off in a debate on March 13
    Wilders' party is expected to get 20 per cent of the popular vote, compared to Rutte's 16 per cent
    A simple majority is generally sought to govern, but all but one party have ruled out sharing power with Wilders

Campaigning for the Dutch election began on Wednesday with anti-Islam leader Geert Wilders as the frontrunner in a vote that will test the anti-establishment sentiment that swept Britain out of the European Union and Donald Trump into the US presidency.

Wilders, a Eurosceptic, anti-immigration fan of Trump, has dubbed the March 15 parliamentary election the start of a 'Patriotic Spring' in Europe, where French and German voters go to the polls in May and September.

Wilders and his Party for Freedom has led in opinion polls for most of the past two years, but the fragmented political landscape means a coalition government of four or more parties is all but inevitable.

His main rival, Prime Minister Mark Rutte of the conservative VVD Party, is banking on a strengthening economic recovery to restore popularity lost during the austerity years of 2012 to 2014.

Trouble is the Dutch voting system means a coalition govt, and all the globalist parties refuse to do any deal with Geert Wilders.

The good news is that when he predicts a "Patriotic Spring" across Europe, he is probably right.
