DUTCH leadership hopeful Geert Wilders is calling for a quick exit from the European Union because of Angela Merkel’s ‘stupidity’.
The controversial anti-immigration MP, who is leading all the polls to be the country’s next leader, has attacked the German chancellor’s open-door asylum policy and vowed to cut ties with Brussels if he takes power after next spring’s parliamentary elections.
Mr Wilders said in a recent interview: “We have a political elite at the top not listening to them and that is why parties like mine all over Europe are getting votes.
“We should not have to pay for the stupidity of Angela Merkel.
“She can invite anyone she wants but we did not invite them so they shouldn’t be able to come here. We will decide ourselves who is welcome here.”
He sounds like John Howard in 2001: “But we will decide who comes to this country and the circumstances in which they come.”
