FILE - In this Friday, March 5, 2010 file photo, controversial Dutch politician Geert Wilders arrives for a press conference in London. With his mane of platinum-blond hair, Geert Wilders rose to prominence by hammering away at a hardcore anti-Islam message. Now, as the Netherlands heads into elections with economic crisis raging across the continent, Wilders has taken aim at a different target: the European Union. But this time, the populist firebrand's attempt to ride a wave of voter anger appears to be foundering. Wilders has tried to revive his Freedom Party's fortunes on promises to ditch the euro and ignore European budgetary rules ahead of the Sept. 12 election. (AP Photo/Kirsty Wigglesworth, File)
