Wilders can now go to the UK...

Overturned by the courts, the politicians are still upset...
Right-wing Dutch legislator Geert Wilders, who faces prosecution in his homeland for anti-Islam remarks, won an appeal on Tuesday against a British government ban preventing him from entering Britain.

Wilders was barred in February from coming into Britain because ministers said his presence would threaten community harmony and public safety.

He had planned to show his film "Fitna," which argues that the Koran incites violence, in the British parliament but was turned back after landing at London's Heathrow Airport.

Britain's Asylum and Immigration Tribunal has now overturned that decision following a challenge by Wilders, meaning he could now be allowed into the country.

"We are disappointed by the court's decision today. The government opposes extremism in all its forms," a Home Office spokesman said.

We oppose extremism in all forms, as long as it not Islamic, then we don't mind.
