The UK Border police have refused entry to three far-right activists on the ground that their presence in the country would 'not be conducive to the public good'. Brittany Pettibone, an American, and her Austrian boyfriend Martin Sellner were refused entry at Luton Airport on Friday. "They were detained for two days, and then deported" says the BBC*. Another activist, Lauren Southern, a Canadian, was was refused entry by the Border Force near Calais (France) as she tried to cross the English Channel to Britain.
Southern says she was questioned under the Schedule 7 of the Terrorism Act 2000, on her political views and her opinion on right-wing terrorism. She tells BBC Trending that she was refused entry on the grounds of her involvement "in the distribution of racist material in Luton".
In February, the Canadian activist displayed flyers saying "Allah is a gay god" outside a restaurant in the town centre.
* Technically this is inaccurate. To be 'deported' a person has to first be on UK soil, and anyone detained by immigration police is deemed to have not entered the country. The correct term is 'removed'.
You do know the cop on the left is a Sikh, don't you? Like the ones regularly murdered in the USA for being 'ragheads'?
The UK can thank Islam for this.
We have had armed police at airports, rail stations, etc, for 40 years, even tanks at Heathrow, initially because of the Provisional IRA, funded by the American Noraid organisation. Do you ever do any factual research (scary idea, I know!) before posting anything?
If there is a choice between Far-right activists or Muslim terrorists... it clear that Britain prefers the Muslim terrorists.
That is their right. In my opinion, they are making the correct choice.
The Muslim Terrorist president in the US was far more popular than the current Far-right president.
I guess we feel the same way in the US.
Would you like to guess Islams body count?
Yes... I will bite. How many people in the UK have been killed by "Islams[sic]".
If you are going to go with the world... we will have to compare Christians and Hindus and Buddhists to Muslims.
You are just pushing one side of a religious war.
... it seems to me that you are the one preaching hate here.
It is not hate, it is a warning that freedom will disappear if something is not done.
How will freedom disappear? What are you really afraid of?
It seems awfully silly to me.
No one has an absolute right to enter another country. Each country has the responsibility to keep their countryman safe, and if they decide certain foreign visitors are not welcome, they have every right to deny entry.
It really doesn't matter what anyone else thinks. I don't allow people I deem dangerous, boring or whatever to enter my home....that's my prerogative.
OMG, you are ridiculous. Send me your address and my family will come for a 9 month visit. Do you not see what a ridiculous person you are? You should be embarrassed, but you're not are you? Do you know why you're not embarrassed?
Of course you don't, thats why your posts are so delicious......you are the poster boy.
Oh God no, I'm not surprised. I know why that happened, but I've never underestimated the public's desire for crap.
