A full transcript is below the jump:

0:01 Don't let yourself be hoaxed.

0:02 These elections are about *one* thing only.

0:12 The European Union. Who is the one who acts?

0:15 We must pay billions for Greece.

0:17 They [the Greeks] spend way too much money.

0:20 Falsified statistics. A lot of civil servants.

0:24 Now, Spain needs our help, just as do Portugal and Cyprus,

0:29 and soon maybe Italy.

0:31 Bankrupt banks, bankrupts countries. *You* are called to foot the bill.

0:37 At Amsterdam airport, planeloads of new foreigners arrive.

0:42 Holland has hardly any say left about its own immigration.

0:47 Brussels is the boss of our borders, and PM Rutte supports it.

0:52 There is already too much Islam in Holland.

0:55 Enough is enough.

0:58 Islamisation is growing by the day.

1:00 Thanks to the European Union, which forces us to keep our borders open.

1:05 Mass immigration costs us at least €7 billion per year.

1:11 Kunduz [nickname for the transitional minority government] always follows the Brussels diktat exactly.

1:15 The citizen must pay.

1:18 Our purchasing power is lowered,

1:20 the VAT is raised,

1:22 personal risk is raised,

1:24 taxes are raised.

1:26 Our senior citizens must pay for their walkers.

1:29 And all in order to fatten southern Europe.

1:34 Those taking the car or a train are the losers — commuter tax:

1:39 Hard workers in the queue of cars easily pay several hundred euros per month.

1:44 Thanks a lot, VVD [PM Rutte's party].

1:47 But it gets even worse.

1:51 Brussels also wants to be the boss of our pensions, our mortgage deductions,

1:56 our social benefits. In Brussels, they are very happy with Mark Rutte.

2:01 The unelected eurocrats can always count on him.

2:05 He blindly signs every blank cheque. See, there goes another billion.

2:10 Holland is Europe's biggest net payer.

2:13 Cost: €7 billion euro year.

2:16 But the euro project has now failed grimly.

2:22 The euro is not money; the euro costs us money.

2:28 The European Union is a disaster for Holland.

2:31 We no longer have our own currency,

2:33 nor our own immigration policy,

2:35 nor our independence,

2:37 but still having to pay billions to bankrupt countries and bankrupt banks.

2:43 On 12 September we will vote on Brussels.

2:47 Only the Party for Freedom says: Let's get out of the European Union and the euro.
