Right-wing journalist Lauren Southern denied entry to UK, purportedly over criticism of Islam

The U.K. Home Office confirmed to Fox News that Southern was refused entry to the U.K. at the border in Calais, France on the grounds that her entry was not “conducive to the public good.”

“Border Force has the power to refuse entry to an individual if it is considered that his or her presence in the UK is not conducive to the public good,” a Home Office spokesman said in a statement.

Both Southern and Robinson told Fox News that the material being referred to was a social experiment in which they passed around a fake “LGBT for Islam UK” poster that said: “Allah is Gay, Allah is Trans, Allah is Lesbian, Allah is Intersex, Allah is Feminist, Allah is Queer, Allah is All of Us.”

Both Robinson and Southern denied that the materials were racist, arguing that criticizing a religion is not a racist act.

After Trump canceled a February visit to the U.K., London Mayor Sadiq Khan said Trump had “got the message” and that Trump was “not welcome here while he is pursuing such a divisive agenda.”
