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.
