Full story at the BBC

“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.
