    • Lauren Southern is 22, and an established journalist.

      I’m sure her parents explained the “facts of life” to her long ago, but they would never have thought to warn her against saying the truth. Up until lately no one would have thought that simply stating your opinion could be grounds for denial of entry to once- Great Britain; that used to be true only of Iron Curtain countries and other dictatorships.

      She also didn’t attempt to “test the limits of free speech.” She discovered that in Great Britain, there is no such thing.

      • I agree with you. GB/England/UK is the home of speaker’s corner. The Magna Carta, and is the legal-cultural and in some ways the spiritual home of Canada, the USA, Australia, the good aspects of Nigeria and India. The thought that one cannot go there because of the reasons stated is simply horrifying. It means that Orwell’s certainty of the nature of the future of GB was justified. Not a cautionary tale so much as a promise.

        And it makes me profoundly unhappy.

  1. A paragraph like this can now be added to her wikipedia entry https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moshe_Feiglin#Banned_from_Britain
    Banned from Britain
    Feiglin is banned from entering the United Kingdom due to a decision by Home Secretary Jacqui Smith, made public in March 2008, excluding Feiglin on the grounds that his presence in the country “would not be conducive to the public good”.[63] A letter to Feiglin from the Home Office said that Smith based her decision on an assessment that his activities “foment or justify terrorist violence in furtherance of particular beliefs; seek to provoke others to terrorist acts; foment other serious criminal activity or seek to provoke others to serious criminal acts and foster hatred which might lead to inter-community violence in the UK.”[64][65] Feiglin responded, “Seeing that renowned terrorists like Hizbullah member Ibrahim Mousawi are welcomed in your country in open arms, I understand that your policy is aimed at encouraging and supporting terror.”[66]

    -writing, producing, publishing or distributing material;
    -public speaking including preaching;
    -running a website;
    -using a position of responsibility such as a teacher, community or youth leader
    To express views that:
    -foment or justify terrorist violence in furtherance of particular beliefs;
    -seek to provoke others to terrorist acts;
    -foment other serious criminal activity or seek to provoke others to serious criminal acts;
    -foster hatred which might lead to inter-community violence in the UK.
    You are advised not to travel to the UK as you will be refused admission on arrival. Although there is no statutory right of appeal against the Home Secretary’s decision, this decision is reviewed every three years.

    • note — that archived link is not the one to LS’s letter, but I assume she will upload and archive her letter once it gets published in writing somewhere so it is wikipedia-worthy.
