Geert Wilders and our freedom
Geert Wilders is a Dutch parliamentarian whose film Fitna calls Muslims to remove "hate-preaching" verses from the Koran. The Home Office has refused him entry to Britain where he was to show his film.
Mr Wilders was told that his visit would “threaten community harmony and therefore public security".
So, if Mr Wilders speaks freely and some people respond violently, it is Mr Wilders who is at fault?
"Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom," said Pitt the Younger. "It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves."
