Michael Fabricant MP is wrong to seek a lifting of the ban on shock jock Michael Savage entering Britain
“I disagree with Savage’s views, but in the light of events in Paris and the need to defend free speech, it is more ridiculous than ever to bar him from the UK”.
Though Fabricant has chosen to ignore Savage’s offensive comments – which number remarks such as: “When I see a woman in a burka, I see a Nazi” and [of Muslims]: “I said so kill 100 million of them, then there would be 900 million of them. I mean would you rather us die than them? I mean what is it gonna take for you people to wake up? Would you rather we disappear or we die? Or would you rather they disappear and they die? Because you’re gonna have to make that choice sooner rather than later” – he fails to accept that Britain is a country which has prospered as a tolerant nation and not one that celebrates hate.
Both Gordon Brown and David Cameron were right to ban the male equivalent of Katie Hopkins from Britain and though Savage calls it a “true nightmare of Kafka”, long may it remain.
