Geert Wilders: "So I think many Dutchmen are fed up with more European Union and this treaty with Ukraine -- that is, as a matter of fact, not in the interests of the Dutch people -- might send a message to Brussels and the elite all over Europe that enough is enough and that we regain, in this patriotic spring that has started in the last few months, a part of our national sovereignty and once again I hope that later, both in the United Kingdom and elsewhere in Europe, other countries will follow."
