This country is presently holding Fredrick Tobin in a prison cell, pending extradition to Germany, which proposes to put him on trial for Holocaust denial. He should not be there.
However, the Sheikh will not be standing alone. He will be joined by a 9/11 conspiracy theorist, an exhorter of the suicide murder of Sir Salman Rushdie, some Hamas supporters, a washed up Trotskyite, two Jacksons – one of whom sings, and the other of whom rants about “Zionist Control” – and a man who has preached the sanctity of wife beating.
This motley crew will also be graced with the presence of a number of Labour grandees, including Stephen Timms MP. As far as I can tell, there will also be some Tories for good measure.
How can a Government lock up Holocaust Deniers and inciters of terrorism, while standing on a platform with men like these?
