LONDON (AFP) – …“I think it’s important that people understand the sorts of values and sorts of standards that we have here, the fact that it’s a privilege to come and the sort of things that mean you won’t be welcome in this country,” [Home Secretary Jacqui Smith] said.

“If you can’t live by the rules that we live by … we should exclude you from this country and, what’s more, now we will make public those people that we have excluded,” she told the GMTV broadcaster.

Between October and April the Home Office excluded 22 people for “fostering extremism or hatred” included preachers Abdullah Qadri Al Ahdal, Yunis Al Astal and Amir Siddique, said a Home Office statement.

Hamas MP Yunis Al-Astal, Jewish extremist Mike Guzovsky, former Ku Klux Klan leader Stephen Donald Black and neo-Nazi Erich Gliebe are also on the list, as is controversial radio host Michael Alan Weiner, also known as Michael Savage.

..okay, boys, cue Weiner exhorting the courage of Geert Wilders…

    Apparantly, the British people are so vulnerable, so easily manipulated by persuasive speakers that espouse “hatred” etc… (ad nauseum, none of this stuff really means anything, it’s all contextual, subjective and political) that they need their government to step in and protect them from being influenced by anyone other than, say, their own government.

    Remember back in the good old days, when the Soviet Union’s control over it’s people’s thoughts and speech as “BAD”, and Great Britain and the other Allies were “GOOD”.

    Britain has degenerated into a pathetic country, not even second-world. Somewhere at the feeble level of Zaire, only with slightly better sanitation, necessary as the food is so much worse.

    That was a third-world country that put up 45,000 of its military people to help us invade Iraq? Suffered thousands of casualties, and 179 deaths? Suffered the 7/7 subway bombings in retribution, killing 52 and injuring hundreds? You don’t sound too grateful there, Jonny.

    Britain’s always been conservative on free-speech issues, it’s very easy to get sued for libel there. They’ve also got a more impoverished Muslim population, so I don’t see why they wouldn’t be careful about admitting people they know will cause problems. Savage makes millions in the lucrative right-wing hate-bazaar radio game, and a ban is the price he pays for playing.
