We are told today that a Dutch far-right MP, Geert Wilders, has been banned from entering the UK on grounds of "public security".
I do not support a lot of his views, but his film is quite truthful - it's about why militant Islamists have used the Koran as grounds for terrorism. Whether you agree with it or not, he should have the freedom to share his views.
A travel ban is incredibly hypocritical. For one he's an ELECTED MP of an EU country, and even though I disagree with the freedom of movement provisions of the EU, they are the law and just because this man is anti-Islam doesn't mean you can flout it. Funny that MPs want more rights in this country but want to take them away from foreign MPs who disobey the politically correct line.
There's also the small issue of the number of radical imams who preach hate and preach overthrowing the government - who aren't removed because Islam must be treated with kiddy gloves, and they can't be accused by a few idiots of being racist (despite the fact that Islam was a religion last time I checked). We also have Learco Chindamo, a permanent citizen (not just a short-term visitor) who is allowed to stay because of the human rights hysteria. THEY are the real threats to security in this country.
Not only this, but Lord Ahmed (who seems to be the only person in the country who wants Wilders to be banned from entering) has threatened to bring 10000 Muslims to protest outside the Lords if the MEETING goes ahead. Elected politician versus appointed politician? I think Lord Ahmed's threat should be investigated as a terrorist threat to be honest.
This sickens me. The government seems to be priding itself in removing opposition, be it by arresting opposition MPs, banning members of certain political parties from joining the police or not allowing a foreign MP into the country.
We were once the bastion of freedom. No longer.
