The Story Continues.
“This is a matter for the Home Office”
The Home Office
The Home Office has told me that “order Force has the power to refuse entry to an individual if it is considered that his or her presence in the UK is not conducive to the public good.”
Their email added:
Background lines on Lauren Southern:
- Lauren Southern was refused Leave to Enter the UK by Border Force in Coquelles this morning (Monday 12 March).
- She was refused on policy grounds that her presence in the UK was not conducive to the public good.
Background lines on Brittany Pettibone and Martin Sellner:
- Brittany Pettibone and Martin Sellner were refused Leave to Enter and Admission respectively at Luton Airport on Friday 9th March.
- Both individuals were refused on policy grounds that their presence in the UK was not conducive to the public good.
- They were detained and subsequently removed from the UK yesterday (Sunday 11 March).
My MP Oliver Letwin told me “Brittany Pettibone has not been ‘imprisoned’. She is a Canadian national and she has been deported, following a brief three-day period during which she was detained at the border as a result of being refused entry, alongside two other far-right anti-Muslim activists.”
He continued “I don’t know any of the details of this case, but I think it is perfectly proper for the Home Office to make the decision to ban far right activists (or indeed other extremists of other kinds) from entering the UK if it is believed that their intent is to stir up agitation and hatred in this country.“
And “UK citizens and residents have the right to free speech within the law. But we also have a right as a country to prevent agitators from entering the country.“
We need to follow this story up and keep standing for the right to be Non-left-wing and the right to point out problems with Islam.
Re the right the Home Office and Mr Letwin saying that they have the right “to refuse entry to an individual if it is considered that his or her presence in the UK is not conducive to the public good.” Well maybe they do and maybe they should, but we need to ask how come it is being used disproportionately again people who see problems with Islam or with Left-wing philosophies and when those with violent Islamist views are being let in.
If you have not seen this video by Paul Joseph Watson, it shows something of how biased the vetting of those who are allowed into the UK. Be Warned Paul is a bit spicy.
