The Netherlands - Speaking at the Labour Party (PvdA) conference in Apeldoorn on Saturday, leader Wouter Bos sharply criticised the Christian Democrats (CDA) and the conservative VVD party for refusing to rule out the possibility of governing in a coalition with the Freedom Party.

Bos said the world of the Freedom Party (PVV), led by the harshly anti-Muslim Geert Wilders, is not the world of the Labour Party. He said everyone counted with the PvdA, but that this was not the case with the VVD.

Bos said the CDA and the VVD are ducking the issue of the PVV's beliefs by insisting that they will not exclude a single democratic party from a possible coalition. He stressed that the PvdA will not sit in a cabinet that includes the PVV.
