Heh, I would like to think that perhaps, after seeing what happened here in the US, was that those who opposed the right wing candidate, rather than saying, Meh, he can't win, no one would vote for him, realized, wow, apathy can get the unlikely candidate elected,and got to the polls. Noah did say there was a high percentage of voters.

Here, supposedly, one issue was that we city dwellers figured there was no way he'd get elected, and many people cast protest votes for a third party and many others simply didn't vote.

Being married to a Green Card (resident alien) holder, we've already noticed the effects. The Green Card holder lines at major Northeast airports are much, much longer than they used to be as they pull more people aside for detailed questioning. And she's from Japan, which is, so far, an ally.

Well, as entertaining as the video was, it was also a bit wrong and missed a lot of context.

Wilders *did* win. His party went from 15 seats to 20 seats and became the second largest party. There are 13 parties with seats in total (and 28 parties in total participating), so "being second" actually means something.

From the point of view of a U.S. two-party system, this may seem like "losing", but it's not really. The PVV still grew by 33%.

The only reason so many people are breathing a sigh of relief is that the polls were high – sometimes much higher – than that.

The promise to keep out the "bad immigrants" (or "bad hombres", as you can apparently call them these days) while keeping the "good immigrants" seems like impossibility to me. You either make it harder for everyone, or you make it harder for no one, but selectively applying these things doesn't really work.

I moved to the UK last year, and as a EU national all I had to do was apply for a national insurance number (so my employer can pay me), which consisted of one brief phone call and one brief interview.

Who knows what things will look like post-Brexit, but I doubt it'll be as easy as this. One of my American coworkers has been having a lot of problems with the Irish immigration services (I work for an Irish company), even though he's exactly the sort of skilled worker that's in high demand and will only contribute to the economy.
