Michael Savage can go to England

London’s Daily Mail and other British newspapers say Marin County radio host Michael Savage can now visit the UK after the government has ditched a list of people banned from Britain for supposedly spreading hate and terrorism.

Two months ago, Home Secretary Jacqui Smith listed Savage and 15 others as “least wanted” visitors. Savage (whose real name is Michael Weiner) sued Smith for libel, saying he she had no right to put him on the same list as a former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard, a skinhead gang leader and a Hezbollah militant. Savage said he also was forced to hire body guards.

Last week, Smith stepped down in the wake of a scandal over the personal use of taxpayer funds and her successor, Alan Johnson, has dropped the list, the Daily Mail said:

Savage has used the ban to his advantage, frequently making it a topic on his show, heard weekdays from 3 to 7 p.m. on KNEW 910 and nationally on more than 200 stations.
