The Government's gift to the 'ban the Koran' campaign.

Dutch MP Geert Wilders was totally unknown in Britain until yesterday. Today he's the talk of the town. The BBC, the Guardian, Jon Gaunt in the Sun, the Telegraph and the rest are all talking about him, courtesy of the government refusing him entry on the grounds that his presence poses a "sufficiently serious threat to the interests of our society".

And yet you can't say that Mr Wilders didn't try. He even modelled his hairdo after the typical British barrister wig - an ill-judged attempt to woo public sympathy. In the meantime, he can console himself with the fact that his campaign to ban the Koran may have just scored its biggest publicity stunt yet. Thousands are now downloading his film online.
