Geert Wilders coming to Australia

Although I never watch the tax-payer-funded ABC I was alerted to a show they ran tonight.

It seems that Geert Wilders is coming to Australia after being invited by Liberal Party Senator Cory Bernardi.

(Please note that in Australia the Liberal Party is the Conservative Party.)

This text from the ABC site:

A controversial Dutch politician who's been prosecuted for hate speech says he's coming to Australia.

Geert Wilders, who controls the balance of power in the Netherlands' parliament, has outraged Dutch Muslims by comparing the Koran to Hitler's Mein Kampf and calling the Prophet Muhammad a paedophile.

But Wilders has his supporters, among them Liberal Senator, Cory Bernardi.
