Wilders denied access to Great Britain
Geert Wilders is denied access to Britain by the British government. Wilders was invited by a British parliamentarian to show the film Fitna.
Minister of Foreign Affairs Maxime Verhagen has expressed his displeasure with his British colleague Miliband. “Whether this is possible, is a decision of the House of Lords, but for another EU country to deny access to a Dutch parliamentarian is very unfortunate,” said Verhagen.
Verhagen made the news known via the Twitter micro blog service. On Twitter one could read that Verhagen had “called Mr. Miliband to express his dissatisfaction with the decision by London to deny Wilders access to the United Kingdom.”

Wilders will go to London anyway
PVV leader Geert Wilders is planning this Thursday to just go to Great Britain. He finds it “unimaginable” that the country refuses him access. “This is a sort of cowardice that exceeds all,” Wilders said Tuesday.
“I think I will go. We will see whether they will arrest me. I still have to think about it, but this is about freedom of expression. I’m actually invited by a Member of Parliament. This is really incredible and disproportionate,” said the Parliamentary member.
