Verhagen lashes out at Wilders

21st November 2011, Comments 1 comment

Dutch Deputy Prime Minister Maxime Verhagen lashed out at Freedom Party PVV leader Geert Wilders, telling him, “the time for easy decisions is over."

Mr Verhagen, who is also interim leader of the governing CDA, was responding to statements by the PVV leader. Last week, Mr. Wilders repeatedly announced that his party would not support any new spending cuts unless the government agreed to slash €4 billion from the development aid budget.

The PVV agreed to support the minority coalition on economic policies in return for tighter controls on immigration and cuts to cultural subsidies.
