“Controversial American pastor Terry Jones has been excluded from the UK for the public good.
The pastor had been invited to the UK to give an address to the right-wing group England Is Ours in Milton Keynes.
Mr Jones gained international attention for threatening to burn a copy of the Koran outside his church in the US on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.”
I am conflicted. On one hand I’m happy that an idiot isn’t going to be allowed to come to my country and rile up a whole bunch of other idiots – but on the other hand, I can’t help feeling that Terry Jones is a minnow who’s been made to look like a shark by a media magnifying-glass, and this just further feeds his absurdly inflated status.
I am conflicted. Conflicted is me.
