In a debate in the Dutch parliament today, Geert Wilders called on the Dutch government to demand from their British colleagues that the ban on him travelling to the United Kingdom be rescinded. The Freedom Party chairman feels that up to now the Dutch government has only been going through the motions in protesting the ban.
He also announced that he refuses to accept the ban and plans to fight it. "I will appeal that cowardly decision,'' Wilders said. "I will fight it, even though it will be a long struggle.''
