A conversation on a train with two young PVV voters ended with GroenLinks candidate parliamentarian Lisa Westerveld being called a "GroenLinks whore" and "ugly bitch". The young men also threatened her by calling someone and arranging that she be met by guys at the Nijmegen station. "When they are done with you you'll vote PVV", they said, Westerveld told AD.

"I did not think the call was real, but you never know", Westerveld said on Wednesday. A teacher from Nijmegen walked with her through the station and all went well. "On the bike home I looked over my shoulder and shivered all the way. It had more impact than I realized."

The conversation with the two young men started pleasantly, about a metal concert. But the mood changed suddenly when Westerveld revealed that she is a candidate on GroenLinks' list of parliamentarians. They told her they were voting PVV and it turned into a fight. "It was so hypocritical", Westerveld said about the talk with the young men. "They scolded the way our women are treated, then treat me the same way."

Westerveld wrote about her encounter on the train between Utrecht and Nijmegen on Joop.nl. According the her, it was "impossible to have a normal conversation. Because foreigners take away our homes and that is the left-wing's fault. The picture of the little boy who drowned int eh Mediterranean sea was put in the scene for the service of leftist parties."
