Geert Wilders leads Dutch polls

Mr Wilders has benefited from the publicity provided by Dutch and International headlines that followed a decision last month to ban him from showing his anti-Muslim film, Fitna, in the House of Lords. His attempt to enter Britain, his detention and subsequent deportation, following an order by Jacqui Smith, the Home Secretary, have made the Dutch MP into a free speech martyr and celebrity in the Netherlands.

New opinion polling now puts Mr Wilders ahead of the Christian Democrats, who lead a coalition government.

“How happy I am about this. These are of course just polls, but it is an enormous sign of confidence from the Dutch voter,” said Mr Wilders.

“As far as I am concerned, elections can be held tomorrow, then I will be the next premier.”
