Charon Reports on the Geert Wilders affair…
Today I am talking to Carl Gardner, barrister, writer, ex government lawyer and author of the Head of Legal blog about the (possibly) unlawful exclusion of Geert Wilders.
Wilders has been excluded under regulations 19(1) and 21 of the Immigration (European Economic Area) Regulations 2006, which faithfully copy out and implement the requirements of article 27 of Directive 2004/38 on the rights of EU citizens to move freely.
UPDATE 14TH FEBRUARY
BBC Any Questions Radio 4: David Davies MP speaks on Free Speech issue – says Government wrong to ban Wilders.

No sign, as far as I can see (yet) of Liberty response. Will continue to look. If anyone finds a response before I do – please put comment in and I’ll publicise Liberty response.
