Wilders re-invited to Lords to show Fitna

Dutch News reports that anti-immigration politician Geert Wilders has once again been invited to the House of Lords to speak and to show his YouTube hit film Fitna. Presumably the invitation comes from the same two peers as before: Baroness Cox and Lord Pearson of Rannoch.

Last year the same invitation was made, prompting a formal letter to the Dutchman from the then home secretary Jacqui Smith telling him to stay away for reasons of maintaining public order. As a result, Wilders was turned away at Heathrow, only to have that decision ruled unlawful by the Asylum and Immigration Tribunal last October.

It will be interesting to hear what the deplorable ex-con Lord Ahmed has to say about it this time.

Wilders is currently awaiting the formal start of a trial in the Netherlands, where he is accused of saying hurtful things about a certain desert-born monotheistic belief system and its accompanying holy book.

    Interesting that there are no public order issues to be addressed regarding the planned visit by Pope Ratty later this year. There are many of us here that regard the Pope as possibly the vilest criminal on the entire planet and would prefer that he did not visit our country to promote his revolting and poisonous religion. Unfortunately for us we are not potentially violent thugs, so the visit can go ahead without those inconvenient public order issues getting in the way.

    Can’t promise that we won’t take the piss though, his physical resemblance to Emperor Palpatine is pretty hilarious.

    This should outrage the muslims, perhaps Lord Ahmed will provide his 20,000
    radicals. Perhaps not as much as the majority outrage as to it being banned the first time.
