Geert Wilders and friends are constantly telling us the Netherlands is undergoing a process of Islamisation – but what about the unwelcome influence of Christians on the government? asks Robin Pascoe.

An unholy alliance of the three Christian parties and the socialists on Tuesday voted to reform the Sunday shopping laws – to make sure Sunday stays a day of rest in most of the country.

Until now, shopkeepers and local councils have been able to open their doors every Sunday by claiming to be a tourist area. But that is now to change. Only proper tourist areas – Amsterdam city centre and a handful of other towns with nice gables and cheese markets – will be able to claim to be just that.
