This evening, the Dutch public television channel 1 announced that the Dutch public has chosen Geert Wilders MP, chairman of the Party for Freedom (PVV), as Politician of the Year 2013.

For many months, the PVV has been the largest party in the Dutch polls.
The party is an outspoken opponent of the tax and austerity policies of the Dutch government. Mr Wilders and his party are also indomitable defenders of Western freedoms, such as freedom of speech. These freedoms are threatened by the process of islamization that is currently going on in the Netherlands and other nations.
