Danish liberal party to block Wilders invite

Denmark’s Liberal Alliance party wants to block an invitation to Dutch anti-Islam MP Geert Wilders to attend a conference on the freedom of speech, Danish newspaper Politiken reports on Wednesday.

‘We don’t want to make this conference a freak show, to which we simply call in those who can create the most trouble on the streets,’ the paper quotes party chairman Anders Samuelsen as saying.
The Liberal Alliance and Danish People’s Party are joint organisers of the conference, the paper says. But the People’s Party does want to invite Wilders, who was recently banned from Britain because of his outspoken statements on Islam and Muslims.
