Dutch Ambassador arrives at Heathrow to offer assistance to Wilders 2.20pm
Mr Wilders told The Times on the flight that the British Government was “the biggest bunch of cowards in Europe”.
”It is easy to invite people you agree with, it is more difficult to invite people you disagree with and this is the proof of the pudding," he said.
Ticket Wilders gecancelled- Geenstijl.nl
Toedeledokie Flying Circus Of Gurt Wielders. Zojuist is bekend geworden dat het ticket waarmee Geert Wilders op illegale wijze Brits grondgebied wilde betreden is GECANCELLED. Bommelding? Defect aan het landingsgestel? Qassams op het strand van Scheveningen? Niks van dit alles. Reden is dat luchtvaartmaatschappijen zich het recht voorbehouden passagiers te weigeren wanneer het land van bestemming al heeft aangegeven dat de passagier niet welkom is. En daarom heeft British Midlands per omgaande besloten een dikke streep door het best betaalde vliegtuigticket van het jaar te zetten. Het verslag van Rutger laat dus nog even op zich wachten. Zodra Wilders een ticket voor de boot naar Dover heeft besteld hoort u het van ons.
UPDATE: The Times: Let. Him In.
UPDATE: Vliegmaatschappij haalt bakzeil. Tickets nu wél gewoon geldig.
Geert Wilders is obviously not a frequent flyer, as he would have realised unless you have to have a valid visa or authority to arrive in a country, the Airline picks the tab up for flying you back.BMA are obviously not keen.
The EU appears to be fairly selective in applying its interpretation of free movement for all EU citizens within its borders, and I have not seen much support for Wilders coming from Brussels at present.
He is attempting to get a Ferry ticket now
This is a truly bloody day for free speech in this country
The entry requirementsfor crossing the borders between/to the EU countries that are not in the Schengen area are the same as for crossing the external borders, except for the United Kingdomand Irelandwhich do not apply the Schengen Borders Code and have their own national regulations on those issues. However, under Directive 2004/38/EC, EU citizens have a right to enter these two countries on presentation of a passport or ID card .
It appears under sec 22 Wilders is deemed to be a threat to either Public policy (thought crime), public security (He is going to run amok ??) or Public Health ( We let people into the UK everyday with TB )
The Treaty allows restrictions to be placed on the right
of free movement and residence on grounds of public
policy, public security or public health. In order to
ensure a tighter definition of the circumstances and
procedural safeguards subject to which Union citizens
and their family members may be denied leave to enter
or may be expelled, this Directive should replace Council
Directive 64/221/EEC of 25 February 1964 on the coordination
of special measures concerning the movement
and residence of foreign nationals, which are justified on
grounds of public policy, public security or public
So basically Jackboot Jacqui (The Dutch liked that one) is seen by Holland as defending multicultural Britain at the expense of Free speech, whilst the boy Milliband is giving Pakistan half a million to air 'Don't hurt us' on their TV.
WTF are these people doing ? It has only been a few months since Brown declared Iceland a 'terrorist state'. Now Holland ! He is also furious with Sarkozy for saying he had brought Britain to its knees financially. He has declared war on the people of this country, now is turning on our near neighbours.
Joy, 'Lord' Ahmed can invite terrorist supects, but not Lord Pearson, he really does not get what free speech means at all.
Jacqui Smith would not put up speaker this morning on R4 to defend this action, but Chris Huhne ( Huhn Ger. Chicken) rushed to Broadcasting House to air his support for the Government- time to drop the 'Liberal' bit in your title now, Labour Lite or Social Democrats, but not Liberal.
Off Subject: Boris laying into the prospective 'Lord' Vaz- The Penguin, why is Cameron leader of the Tories ?
