Updates: Dhimmi Broad: Sexapalooza OK – Mark Steyn BAD
“On Tuesday, I received a phone call from the LCC telling us that our venue had been pulled, and that Mark Steyn would not be permitted to speak there. The reason offered by the LCC was that they had received pressure from local Islamic groups, and they didn’t want to alienate their Muslim clients. It’s interesting to note that the LCC is owned by the City of London, and is therefore a government operation.”
You realize this means War!
Update: Steyn weighs in
“Non-controversial reporter Kate Dubinski seems to have learned only one adjective at journalism school. Either that, or while I was sleeping some wag had my name legally changed to Controversial Author Mark Steyn. Whatever the reason, this is the way it is. All London taxpayers pay for the London Convention Centre, but the London Convention Centre apparently does not serve all London taxpayers. It won’t be too long now and, like Robin Hood and his Merrie Men, we’ll be having to hold our get-togethers in a clearing in the forest on the edge of town“
Give the London Feeble Press Hell in the Comments as well.
