Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I wonder when it was when you learned about his views.

You draw a parallel with the role Bolkestein played in the Netherlands in shifting the public debate on the multicultural society. As I explained, this was from the early nineties until Bolkestein became a EU Commissioner in 1999. It is that time period you want to consider. The parallel becomes patently bunk if Bolkestein is retrospectively charged with everything he said in public since that time.

You can, as I did, look for his speeches and editorials at Bolkestein's website.
