“People (Germans) use to frighten their children, ‘If you do not behave, you will surely end up at Dachau.’”
- Theodore Haas
As the European federalists continue trying ruthlessly to construct their would-be superstate, with unquestioning support from the “left wing” throughout the nation states involved, disturbing news emerges from Amsterdam. The Guardian reports:
the Dutch capital may lose its reputation for tolerance over plans to dispatch nuisance neighbours to “scum villages” made from shipping containers.
The mayor, Eberhard van der Laan, insists his controversial new £810,000 policy to tackle antisocial behaviour is to protect victims of abuse and homophobia from harassment.
The camps where antisocial tenants will be rehoused for three to six months have been called “scum villages” because the policy echoes proposals from Geert Wilders, the far-right populist, who last year demanded that “repeat offenders” be “sent to a village for scum”.
But Bartho Boer, a spokesman for the mayor, denies that the plans are illiberal.
