Dutch MP Geert Wilders refused entry to Britain, returned to the Netherlands

Far-right Dutch politician Geert Wilders was turned away at London’s Heathrow airport after attempting to ignore the security ban on his entry into the country. Immigration officials denied Wilders entry into the UK after the government decided he should not be allowed to attend a screening of his anti-Islam film, Fitna. They have deemed him a possible threat to public order.

On his flight to London, Wilders stated that the British government was “the biggest bunch of cowards in Europe.” Wilders’ passport was seized until he could be put back on a return flight to the Netherlands.
