    He should have been allowed in, todays action by the government has resulted in a home goal for them. Why was he not allowed to state his case? There is to much bending over back-wards for Muslims by weak minded fools. If his case holds no water then why the ban? If he has no case then the end result will make him look like a barking mad nutter.

    He should have been allowed to address a cross selection of House of Commons MP's.

    Sounds like the Brits need a first amendment.

    That's the issue in a nutshell. I don't agree that banning the Koran is a good idea. I have real issues with censorship of what is available to read. By the same token, a person's opinion is entitled to be heard. This is especially true in today's world, where we are too interested in protecting "tender feelings" on any number of issues, including radical Islam.
