Front page

Front page Tariq Ramadan on the front page of The Sun. Channel 4 News had an interview with him tonight. For background, see here.

Update (13 Jul): The Sun said he had been banned from France, banned from the US and allowed into Britain. Tariq Ramadan pointed out that he had not been banned from France and banned from the US under the Patriot Act without any reason being given.

This is an example of the right-wing reaction to the terrorist bombings. Another was Melanie Phillips' blaming it on the government 'losing control of asylum-seekers and illegal immigrants. This was written of course before it was known that the bombers were British-born.
