Dutch against Turkey in EU

Will Turkey own the EU?According to a poll conducted by Maurice de Hond for the state owned 'radio 1' channel, 60% of the Dutch are against a full EU membership of Turkey. But at the same time, 65% still thinks Turkey will become a member, because the politicians have a different agenda. Nearly all political parties in Dutch parliament are in favor of a Turkeys EU membership. Only the Lijst Pim Fortuyn (Political party of murdered Pim Fortuyn), SGP (Christian fundamentalists) and independent Representative Geert Wilders. Geert Wilders was even forced to leave the Liberal VVD because he was against Turkey into the EU (90% of the voters of the VVD agree with him).
