Is the New Right Europe’s New Political Platform or is it the Charm of the Power Behind it?

It might be the still ongoing economic crisis, the freedom of movement, the enlargement of the E.U, but one thing is more and more obvious: the right is gaining more and more support in the Western Europe and more and more leaders are using its political platform (or some of it) to make their way up to the top.

Last Wednesday, the PVV Party from Netherland (yep, Geert Wilders is back) has launched its website as a call for complaints against the Central and Easter European migrant workers. They would like to hear if the Dutch citizens have lost their jobs to a Polish, Bulgarian, Romanian or other Easter European. Because according to them “This massive labour immigration leads to many problems; nuisance, pollution, crowding on the labour market and integration and housing problems”.

Of course Brussels made its voice to be strongly heard on this issue: "We solve our problems by showing more solidarity, not by telling tales about our fellow citizens"- Commissioner Viviane Reding).

What was Mr. Wilders’ answer? “Brussels can stuff it.” So much for the European ideals…

Moving further to France, here president Sarkozy promised the French to take into account their opinions regarding issues related to the immigrants and unemployed, if he is re-elected. The votes of the right wing supporters have helped him win his first mandate in 2007.

And let us not forget the massacre from Norway from July last year. It seems that considering the new contexts, the rules of the games are starting to change in Europe.
