Let's Buy Those Chaps A Round!

We would have wished for having a whole host of other dwarf, finks, phonies and frauds on it as well, however, I suppose we will have to be satisfied that the United Kingdom has deemed hatemonger Michael Savage to be comparable to The Plague, and has placed him on a list, barring him entry to the country.

That's bad news for the grease they fry their fish-and-chips in, for there goes the chance of having something more repugnant, slimier, and outright vile, to take its' place at the bottom of the cesspool.

Named and shamed: the 16 barred from UK

Sixteen people banned from entering the UK were "named and shamed" by the Home Office today.

Home Secretary Jacqui Smith said she decided to make public the names of 16 people banned since October so others could better understand what sort of behaviour Britain was not prepared to tolerate.

The list includes hate preachers, anti-gay protesters and a far- right US talk show host


The list of the 16 "least wanted" includes radio talk show host Michael Savage, real name Michael Weiner.

"This is someone who has fallen into the category of fomenting hatred, of such extreme views and expressing them in such a way that it is actually likely to cause inter-community tension or even violence if that person were allowed into the country," Ms Smith told BBC Breakfast.
Other American cretins made the cut, as well;
Also named are American Baptist pastor Fred Waldron Phelps Snr and his daughter Shirley Phelps-Roper, who have picketed the funerals of Aids victims and claimed the deaths of US soldiers are a punishment for US tolerance of homosexuality.
As Joe Gandelman notes, this is like the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval, for those in the Flying Monkey circuit, and likely will give a bump to Weiner/Savage's ratings.

We don't know what it will do for the Alternative Universe-based Phelps Team.
