EALING Central and Acton MP Rupa Huq became embroiled in a diplomatic row involving a Polish right-wing extremist who was denied entry to the UK at Heathrow on Saturday.

She became the target for a welter of abuse after tweeting the news to her followers.

Three years ago, when Rafal Ziemkiewicz had attempted a UK speaking tour of Slough, Cambridge and Acton, all three Labour MPs for those areas condemned the decision.

This time, he was turned away at the airport by the Home Office for holding views ‘not conducive to the public good’.

Ms Huq commented: “I was warned of Ziemkiewicz by constituents in 2018 and how he has sailed close to the wind with numerous controversial remarks on Muslims, Jews, the Holocaust and the LGBTQ community.

“Since then his comments on the morality of women and abortion have also caused offence.

“I’m not convinced sending me racist abuse is going to persuade the UK government of the anti-racist credentials of a guy they refused to admit for racism.”

The British ambassador to Poland is now involved in the fall-out from the incident. 

A Home Office spokesperson said Border Force played an integral role in the security and prosperity of the UK but would not comment on individual cases.
