Last summer the British government banned U.S. radio commentator Michael Savage from setting foot in the UK. "Fostering extremism and hatred " was his crime, as explained by Britain's Home Secretary of the time, Jacqui Smith. "Coming to the U.K. is a privilege," she elaborated, "and I refuse to extend that privilege to individuals who abuse our standards and values to undermine our way of life. Therefore, I will not hesitate to name and shame those who foster extremist views as I want them to know that they are not welcome here."
