Dutch Provincial Councilor Fired for Insulting Comments About Turkish Colleague

13 January 2012

A provincial councilor for the anti-Islam PVV in Limburg has been fired from the party for his comments describing a member of the Labour party as “a piece of sicked-up halal meat made from a Turkish pig”, Dutch News reports. Cor Bosman made the comment in an email a year ago, which was leaked to the local press last week. Bosman, who told reporters he had not been formally informed of the decision, said that he had meant the email to be sarcastic. The PVV is the biggest party in the province, holding 20% of the vote.
