politician refused entry into the UK


A right-wing Dutch politician banned from entering the UK over his anti-Islam views has been turned away after arriving at Heathrow Airport.

Geert Wilders was invited to Westminster by a member of the House of Lords to show his 17-minute film Fitna, which criticises the Koran as a "fascist book".

But on Tuesday he received a letter from the Home Office refusing him entry because his opinions "would threaten community security and therefore public security" in the UK.

Mr Wilders, a member of the Freedom Party in the Netherlands, condemned the British Government as "weak and cowardly" and vowed he would make the trip anyway.

rookie policeman's miracle escape

[quote] Nothing was going to stop rookie PC John Nash getting his first arrest – even when a stick horrifically skewered his eye.

As he was chasing the suspect, John fell into a bush and the six-inch piece of wood pierced right through his face to his brain.

But he bravely ignored the pain, raced after the man and nabbed him as he tried to leap over a fence.

It was only when the suspect turned and said, “Mate, you’ve got to go to hospital” that he realised the extent of his bloody injury.

Doctors told the 25-year-old officer he was lucky to be alive.

PC Nash, who had been in the force for only six days, told how he slipped on a muddy lawn and slid head-first into a bush.

He added: “I was really motoring and I slid into a shrub and I had a ringing in my left ear.
