Wilders targets aid budget
Freedom Party leader Geert Wilders says his recent comments are an attempt to bring down the cabinet.
However, the PVV leader warned that he will do all he can to ensure that the development aid budget is the first in line when the next round of cuts is up for consideration.
On Sunday, Deputy Economic Affairs Minister Henk Bleker drew Mr Wilders’ ire when he dismissed any suggestion that there would be any further cuts to the four billion euro aid budget.
In response, Mr Wilders tweeted that if the CDA minister continued along the path he was following, his party would end up with just four seats. The latest opinion poll gives the coalition party just 10 seats, its' lowest ever.
