Geert Wilders wins his case against Britain’s ban

The truth-telling Dutch politician Geert Wilders, whom we’ve written about many times, can now be allowed to enter Great Britain, the Telegraph reports.

Wilders challenged the decision by then home secretary Jacqui Smith which led to him being turned back at Heathrow Airport.

The ruling by the Asylum and  Immigration Tribunal means the head of the Freedom Party, who is accused of Islamophobia, could now be allowed into the country.

He was due to show his short film Fitna, which criticises the Koran as a ”fascist book”, at the House of Lords in February.

But Ms Smith said his presence had the potential to ”threaten community harmony and therefore public safety”.

It’s a sign of how far Britain has fallen that the normally sensible Telegraph calls Wilders a “far-right Dutch politician” in its sub-headline. Wilders objects to Muslims taking over western societies, and for that he is branded “far-right.” Oh well, Ann and I have been called the same thing; nowadays it’s a badge of honor. But I don’t think the Washington Times or Washington Examiner, which are somewhat equivalent to the Telegraph, would label us far-right.
