Joost van Spanje had an article published in national newspaper Trouw and blog posts on www.Joop.nl and www.Sargasso.nl about the vulnerability of Dutch political party PVV. He argues that the party runs a considerable electoral risk as long as it remains in its current isolated position. A new party, possibly (but not likely) the newly founded VNL, may lure many voters away from the PVV as a result. Joost’s argument is backed up by examples from other countries where isolated parties lost many votes as soon as their voters were offered a viable alternative.
