Harry van Bommel isn't THE leader of the SP, thats Emile Roemer . Van Bommel just a member in the Lower House of Parlement and leaves that this year at the elections. Btw the SP calls itself social-democrats, but are still what they were at the beginning: marxist-leninist. They are anti-Ukraine, and most pro-russian, and one of the parties behind the wacky referendum against EU-Ukraine AA. Btw yes 61% of voters were against in that wacky referendum of the 33% turnout, so thats just 19,63% of Dutch people who were against. Editors: get your facts right !
