Table: Fortuyn's Platform Struck a Chord with Voters across Europe


MINORITIES

Integrate minorities into the "Judeo-Christian humanist" civilization through language and culture courses. Ban arranged marriage, female genital mutilation, and discrimination against homosexuals.

IMMIGRATION

Reduce the number of refugees and discourage asylum seekers.

PUBLIC ORDER

Use military border police and customs officers to fight crime.

GOVERNMENT

Give the people more control. Directly elect the Prime Minister and mayors. Improve public services.

EUROPEAN UNION

Slash Brussels bureaucracy. Establish a powerful European Senate with delegates from national parliaments. Give the Dutch veto power over EU expansion via a referendum.

FINANCES

Resist tax hikes. Scrap capital-gains taxes to encourage entrepreneurs.
