Less freedom of speech – but a trumph for common sense

From BBC news:

A Dutch MP who called the Koran a “fascist book” is to be sent back to the Netherlands after attempting to defy a ban on entering the UK. Freedom Party MP Geert Wilders was invited to show his controversial film – which links the Islamic holy book to terrorism – in the UK’s House of Lords. But Mr Wilders, who faces trial in his own country for inciting hatred, has been denied entry by the Home Office.

Good. The last thing we need is people inciting racial hatred.

Hopefully, when the likes of Abu Hamza are refused entry to the UK in the future, moderates of all faiths will remember today and understand that denying entry to radicals is in the interests of peace and friendship.
