Having lived in the Netherlands for a few months, I found that outside the Randstad (the area between Rotterda, the Hague, Amsterdam and Utrecht) it was exactly as liberal as the UK - no more, no less. You still heard racist and homophobic comments, and some people disaproved of other people, but most people were cool. Even inside that area, there was a fair bit of anti-Turkish sentiment that some people were happy to speak openly about, in English, and expect you to agree with. So no, I don't think it's any more liberal than the UK.
