Banning the Dutch prime minister

LabourHome is reporting that if an election were to be held in the Netherlands today, Geert Wilders' Freedom Party would probably emerge as the largest in the Dutch parliament.

Which would give Jacqui Smith the amusing problem of having to ban the Dutch prime minister from these shores.

The news cycle has moved on, but Geert Wilders remains banned.
This disgraceful decision is still in force.
It is in the interests of many of those I loathe that this state of affairs is quietly forgotten but persists.
I do not intend to remind people of this every day, but certainly every couple of weeks, or more frequently, I will bring it up in conversation so that those who might otherwise forget are reminded of it.

The ban would remain in force if Geert Wilders got a new job, hopefully PM, wouldn't it?
He would have to be un-banned?

Wilders was allowed into the USA, where he made a great speech.

"Geert Wilders' Freedom Party would probably emerge as the largest in the Dutch parliament."This is truly a frightening thought....

Well, it would be nice to hear a politician being truthful about something for a change...

We'd probably have the same situation as when those foolish Austrians voted for Jorg Haiders party. The EU imposed sanctions on them until they saw sense and voted for a different Gov't. Or have we all forgotten?
