Geert Wilders single-handedly founded the Freedom Party in 2005. Despite its youth and the flamboyance of its leader Wilders declared earlier this year that juvenile offenders should be relegated to a "village for scum" the party has achieved overwhelming popularity. In March 2011, polls showed the party with 17.6% approval, second only to the Liberal Party, which governs in a minority coalition with the Christian Democrats.
