One can understand how Britain was once the world's most powerful nation when listening to a great statesman like Lord Pearson.
It was at the invitation of Lord Pearson that Wilders was to speak and screen Fitna in the House of Lords. But the British government, the horrid Home Secretary Jacqui Smith, that Wilders was banned from entering Britain. Lord Pearson would not tolerate the “mother of all parliaments” giving in to threats to Lord Nazir Ahmed (who threatened riots by tens of thousands of Muslims). Hence he decided to reinvite Mr. Wilders. Black Rod, the head of security at the House of Lords, has ordered extra security for the event.
That ban united in opposition Lord Pearson, the Dutch Government—unusual allies.
WILDERS: "Threat to society? I'm an elected member of Parliament; I have done nothing wrong," "I'm a normal, law-abiding democrat. You might agree or disagree with my political point of view, but I'm no threat to anyone."
Despite being banned from once Great Britain, “Fitna” was shown to a private gathering at the House of Lords sponsored by Lord Pearson and Baroness Cox.
Pearson is fearless in his remarks. Much thanks to Pamela Hall for cleaning up the video - lightening it up.
