    The anti-immigrant policy gains made in recent months look likely to continue.

    Europe's mainstream political parties are engaged in a worsening feud over how to deal with the growing power of extreme rightwing anti-immigrant movements. Amid a backlash against immigration that has shaken Germany, France, the Netherlands, and Sweden in recent months, governments of the centre-right or centre-left appear at a loss to counter the appeal of extremist populists who have moved from the madcap fringes of national politics into government, or propping up minority centrist coalitions.

    A liberals-led coalition has just taken office in the Netherlands dependent on the parliamentary support of Geert Wilders, Europe's leading Islam-baiter. In Denmark, another liberals-led government also relies on the anti-immigrant nationalists of the Danish People's Party for survival. Last week, the DPP won a tightening of the most draconian immigration laws in Europe in return for agreeing to the government's budget for next year.


    Alarmed at the growing appeal of the far right, leaders of the centre-right and centre-left are struggling to form a coherent response.
