One lot of lawyers lose...

... another lot win. I've seen Wilder's film and I don't particularly agree with everything the guy has to say, but it was ridiculously excessive to ban him from Britain because other people can't control their tendency to react violently and/or criminally. Go after them by all means, but to ban someone for holding opinions you don't like makes you as bad or worse. Let him in and let him speak and tackle him on his arguments if you disagree with them.
The government opposes extremism in all its forms.
Unless it's extreme government, natch.

It's been a very good day for freedom of speech.

The thought of the backlash this is going to provoke is a bit worrying though..
