Another EU wake up call for the Lib Dems?

Brussels Broadcasting Con

British courts should refuse to act on an EU arrest warrant requesting the extradition of an alleged Holocaust denier, a senior Lib Dem has said.
Australian citizen Dr Gerald Toben was remanded in custody after his arrest by British Police at Heathrow Airport.
German authorities allege Dr Toben published material online "of an anti-semitic and/or revisionist nature".
But home affairs spokesman Chris Huhne said holocaust denial is not a crime in the UK and he should not be extradited.

Well blow me down with a feather! One of the most pro-EU takeover people within the Lib Dems, now wants to defy the laws he has helped hand over to foreign courts. UKIP banged this drum loud and clear and was condemned by people like Buff, for scaremongering.

No matter how wrong you think this guy is, or what his motives are, the idea of putting people in prison for their opinions is sickening. Indeed, it is straight out of the nightmare scenario painted by George Orwell's 1984.

So is this a case of the Lib Dems beginning to see what a monster they have helped to create? Or are they desperately just trying to con the British people, that they are not quite as slavish to the EU, than they really are.

I know which one I think it is and I don't expect them stop their treachery any time soon.

For the record, I think the Holocaust did happen. To what degree, I have no idea, as the victors write the history books. All I do know is it was terrible and we must never let government have so much power, that is can do it again. ID cards for instance would have been Hitler's dream.
