Dutch MP Geert Wilders not welcome in UK

Controversial Dutch MP Geert Wilders (I am not a fan - to put it mildly) is not welcome in the UK. I can see why. He wants to keep 'unwanted foreigners' out of our little country, so now he knows from personal experience what it's like to be refused entry to a free and democratic country and to be sent home as a persona non-grata. Thank you, Great Brittain!

I did like the funny combination of a news article on the BBC web site and a sponsored announcement from our very own 'national' airline KLM ('a journey full of inspiration' the add says - ha, ha). Now you can see that Dutch people have a good sense of humour too!

And now a message to my dear English friends: You can keep Geert Wilders in custody for as long as you like - but be kind to him. He may speak with a funny foreign accent - and yes he looks a bit strange too - but please keep in mind that he also is a human being. We have plenty of so called ‘unwanted foreigners’ already, so this one is for you! We will allow one more real political refugee / asylum seeker in, because the absense of Geert Wilders provides sufficient free breathing space for all people in our little country.
