Don't know much about Martin Sellner but he seems like a bit of a tool. Regardless, pretty insane that we are banning people because they plan on interviewing somebody and are part of "right wing" organizations. I am not sure how much truth there is to the claim that Martin had scenarios regarding possible violence in his speech.

I think it's fair to say that it's time to worry when the government start banning people because of their political and social opinions. Even if we don't have free speech in the UK, It would be nice to think that pretty tame views such as those espoused by Lauren, Britanny and Martin weren't seen as such a threat to the public good that they end up literally detained, questioned and deported/refused entry.
I've only heard Lauren Southern speak. She just speaks like someone in the pub lol.

Absolutely harmless.
