It's remarkable, only in modern Europe can a FAR RIGHT party come second in a General Election and it be hailed as a victory for liberals.

People just aren't seeing the bigger picture. The PVV ran an explicitly anti-Islamisation campaign. These issues are normally marginal in elections, now it's the central political battle ground. The VVD only "won" by presenting themselves as PVV light. If the PVV weren't there then there would have been outrage at what Rutte said.
In this case 87% (I'll write that our in case you have trouble understanding it: eighty-seven percent) of the Dutch voters rejected PVV.

That'as a pretty comprehensive rejection in my book
