Hey, PJ, if you're out there, score one for your side (o'the pond!)

Britain for the first time has published a list of people barred from entering the country for what the government says is fostering extremism or hatred.

The list includes popular American talk-radio host Michael Savage, who has called the Muslim holy book, the Quran, a "book of hate." Savage also has enraged parents of children with autism by saying in most cases it's "a brat who hasn't been told to cut the act out."

The list Tuesday also includes Americans Stephen Donald Black, a white supremacist, and anti-gay preacher Fred Phelps.

I'm still around, Ben. We've been banning dodgy types for a while, but I think it's the first time that the list has been made public. Not sure if any of them were actually intending to come here. That said, there are plenty of extremists already here who've been able to work the UK systems to their benefit.
