Senior British Diplomat Rowan Laxton has sent a written apology to Dutch MP Geert Wilders this morning stating that British Law forbad him to meet Wilders at Heathrow Airport this week. Recently after a series of anti-Jewish outbursts, a complaint was later filed to police and Laxton was arrested and charged with inciting religious hatred, which carries a maximum seven-year prison term. It was reported he shouted that IDF soldiers should be "wiped off the face of the Earth."
Mr. Wilders who was due to go to London this Thursday by invitation of the House of Lords, received a letter today, 10 February, from the British ambassador to the Netherlands telling him that he was not welcome in Great Britain, reportedly because his visit would constitute a threat to public order.
“Geert and I have a lot in common,” Laxton mused after his recent bail out, “ I’m told that in his movie Fitna he quotes Muslims and sacred texts saying the same things that I have allegedly said and for that he was also arrested in the Netherlands. Meeting him would have been brotherly, we would have had much to discuss in our mutual struggle for freedom of speech. sarc off 2/13/2009 Update Text of Geert Wilder's proposed speech had he not been banned from UK yesterday.
