Time Event
Your Statements Threaten the Community Harmony
Some items in the news, possibly unrelated:

The Dutch MP Geert Wilders has been refused entry to the United Kingdom despite being invited to visit by a member of the House of Lords, the British parliament’s upper chamber.

The reason? Geert Wilders wants to slow the inundation of paynims into his country, The Islamic Republic of Hollandistan, or whatever it was once called. (snark) His comments offend the Muslims, who, no doubt, are so easy-going, placid, peaceful and so very difficult to offend that the comments, no doubt, must have been outrageous. (end snark). He is being barred from the country because the Islamics have a de facto veto on public movements of famous poeple in and out of the UK. The crown cannot or will not control the multitudes.

Here is the letter given by the British embassy to Mr. Wilders.
Dear Mr Wilders

The purpose of this letter is to inform you that the Secretary of State is of the view that your presence in the UK would pose a genuine, present and sufficiently serious threat to one of the fundamental interests of society. The Secretary of State is satisfied that your statements about Muslims and their beliefs, as expressed in your film Fitna and elsewhere, would threaten community harmony and therefore public security in the UK.

You are advised that should you travel to the UK and seek admission an Immigration Officer will take into account the Secretary of State's view. If, in accordance with regulation 21 of the immigration (European Economic Area) Regulations 2006, the Immigration Officer is satisfied that your exclusion is justified on grounds of public policy and/or public security, you will be refused admission to the UK under regulation 19. You would have a right of appeal against any refusal of admission, exercisable from outside the UK.

Yours sincerely,

Irving N. Jones

On behalf of the Secretary of State for the Home Department
