Anti-liberal, anti-democratic Britain

The banning by the UK of the right-wing anti-Islam Dutch politician Geert Wilders is a disgusting selling-out of the democratic principles of which the current incumbents of "the mother of parliaments" should ashamed. He may well be a horrible person with views which do not appeal to the majority, but he has an absolute right to express those views and we should respect that right: this is plain and simple censorship.

Wilders described Gordon Brown as "the biggest coward in Europe". Probably the only comment he will ever make with which I agree.
