Thought Police

So Geert Wilders has been denied entry into the UK. A man democratically elected as a member of parliament in a EU nation has been turfed out of our supposedly free country. His crime ? God knows, you tell me. His intention ? To attend a screening of his film in the House of Lords in front of an invited audience of around 30 people.

The authorities' "explanation" is that Mr Wilders posed a "threat to security"; a comment which could have been lifted straight from any country east of the Berlin Wall 30 years ago. It's pitiful, and ............ You can't come in here, mate... ....deeply worrying.

Such is this government's fear of free debate on racial and religious issues now that they want to ban anyone the Islamisc community might not care for. And such is the government's power after ten years of socialism, they can do it.

Apparently the Dutch government are none too pleased. Maxime Verhagen, their Foreign Affairs Minister, phoned David Miliband to protest. Fat lot of good that'll do him. He clearly doesn't understand that protest and debate aren't permitted here.

You might think it poetic justice that someone who has called for the Koran to be banned is himself prevented from speaking, and in some ways it is. But it's not natural justice. Natural justice occurs when people are given the right to say what they think and let others come to their own conclusions.

The name of Wilders' film is Fitna. There are a few different versions of it on Youtube, so I'm not sure which is the real one. But this certainly looks like something ZaNu Labour would love to ban.
