Rem Korteweg, a senior research fellow at the CER, believes that Mr Wilders wins even if he loses. Put another way, a fractured, fragile pro-EU centrist establishment loses even if it wins, as France could be about to discover. “If the alternative to a Wilders-led government is a period of prolonged political instability, the odds of him returning with even more seats next time around would increase,” he said. “Keeping him out of government could then become very difficult indeed.”
