British Disgrace

A quote from Lars Hedegaard, president of the International Free Press Society, 10 February 2009

Is it scandalous for a member state in the European Union to bar an elected parliamentarian and party leader from another member state from entry. For many years, the European populations have been told that the EU is all about "open borders". Now the British Government has demonstrated that it is prepared to close its borders to other Europeans whose opinions it doesn't like. This is a very bad omen for the future of free speech in Europe, and I hope that the other EU member states will protest against this decision in the strongest terms.
