‘It’s a dangerous precedent’

Article image for ‘It’s a dangerous precedent’

Crossbench senator John Madigan has questioned why controversial Dutch politician Geert Wilders has had his visa approved while anti-abortion speaker Troy Newman had his denied.

Senior Muslim figures are urging the Government to cancel the visa of Mr Wilders who is travelling to Australia to launch an anti-Islamic political party in Perth but Senator Madigan says listening to controversial ideas is not the same as supporting them.

He says the Federal Government is setting a dangerous precedent by denying visas.

He spoke with Adam Shand.
