|Geert Wilders leads the Dutch Freedom Party.|
"To the previous generation, that of my parents, the word ‘London’ is synonymous with hope and freedom. When my country was occupied by the national-socialists the BBC offered a daily glimpse of hope in my country, in the darkness of Nazi tyranny. ... ‘This is London’ were a symbol for a better world coming soon.
"What will be broadcasted [sic] forty years from now? Will it still be 'This is London'? Or will it be 'This is Londonistan'? Will it bring us hope? Or will it signal the values of Mecca and Medina? Will Britain offer submission or perseverance? Freedom or slavery? The choice is yours. And in the Netherlands the choice is ours.Wilders' remarks can be read in full here.
"Ladies and gentlemen, we will never apologize for being free. We will and should never give in. And, indeed, as one of your former leaders said: We will never surrender."
