Geert Wilders, leader of the anti-Islam PVV, feels his party came under attack by references to the need for ‘stable government’ in the queen’s speech, the Telegraaf reports on Wednesday.
Wilders described the speech, in which the queen said stable government was necessary for economic recovery, as a ‘total nothing’. And he accused prime minister Jan Peter Balkenende, who writes the speech for the monarch, of ‘rabble rousing’.
The PVV, Christian Democrats and VVD Liberals are currently in talks on forming a new minority government which will have PVV support in parliament. But if the talks succeed, the coalition will only have a majority of one. In addition, the PVV will have the right not to support policies it disagrees with.
‘A minority or majority cabinet says nothing about stability,’ Wilders said.
