Is Geert Wilders the odds on favorite for the next Dutch PM?
Der Spiegel published an article yesterday, in the wake of Wednesday's local elections in The Netherlands - see here-  suggesting that Geert Wilders represented a minority of "disgruntled Dutch voters".  Further, the Der Spiegel article opined and that he would ultimately be unable to form a ruling coalition after the upcoming June parliamentary elections in the Netherlands. That is message nattering EU elitists are conveying in the wake of Wednesday's local election victories for the Dutch Freedom Party in both Almere and The Hague. 

Apparently, those same naysayers in the EU haven't checked with the bookmakers on the real odds of a possible Wilders national victory in Holland.   

Here in the US, the virtual on-line bookmakers are giving Wilders favorable odds in the early June parliamentary elections. Take a look at this latest
Inkling, Inc. question:

Who will become the Dutch prime minister after the elections of June 9th 2010?
Go trade or begin here.

Jan Peter Balkenende

Geert Wilders
lowor high
Wouter Bos
lowor high
Mark Rutte
lowor high
Alexander Pechtold
lowor high
Femke Halsema
lowor high
lowor high
Emile Roemer

If you believe these odds, then Geert is running neck and neck with caretaker PM Jan Peter Balkenende  of the Christian Democrats  for the top PM position.  We wonder what the odds are on the Dutch PM race over at Ladbrokes. PLC, the UK bookmaker?  
There is a quote from the fabled Afro American baseball pitching great, Satchel Paige that applies here: "don't look back, [someone] maybe gaining on you." The Dutch parliamentary elections are getting very interesting in large measure we believe because Wilders is listening to the concerns of Dutch "groundlings' on more than just the "tsunami of Islamification" issue. Meanwhile the parties on the left are arrogantly dismissive of the intelligent ordinary Dutch voters. The left in Holland is behaving like fawning Dhimmi to defend Muslim interests.
