al Bion

I am appalled. I want to send letters to the newspapers signed “Outraged of Middlesex”. Members of the British Parliament invited Geert Wilders, a member of the Dutch Parliament, to show his anti-Islam film in the House of Lords. Now the Home Secretary has used her discretionary powers to refuse Wilders entry to the UK. This is absolutely disgusting behaviour. How dare she refuse entry to an elected representative of a friendly country? How dare she refuse entry to someone who was invited by our own parliament? I feel ashamed to be a British citizen.

Besides the moral turpitude of this act, it appears to contravene EU law (Directive 2004/38/EC) and contradict the views expressed by ministers as recorded in Hansard for the 3rd of April last year. Our government is legally and morally bankrupt.

Thanks to Samizdata for bringing this to my attention.

  1. I too feel ashamed. More so, I feel despair.

    It was a travesty for which Lord Ahmed seems responsible, as he threatened to get ten thousand Muslims to blockade Westminster when Fitna was supposed to have been shown there last month.

    I’m glad that the Lords who invited him over have said that they will screen the film anyway, with or without Wilders’ being there.
