That this House notes with concern that Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) are automatically given security passes to the Houses of Parliament; believes there is no reason why MEPs need such access to the Houses of Parliament; notes that members of the Scottish Parliament, the Welsh Assembly and the London Assembly are not given passes to the Houses of Parliament; further notes that Members of the UK Parliament are not given security passes to the European Parliament on a reciprocal basis; and therefore calls for an end to the practice of giving security passes to the Houses of Parliament to MEPs.This "no platform" thing is just silly, but sillier still is the absurd intolerance of intolerance.

Suddenly it's a problem?
How amusing, it's been standard practice for sometime that British MEPs got security passes into the Palace of Westminister and no one seemed to care. Now that there are two MEPs that are members of the BNP it is suddenly an issue?
