The late Mo Mowlan, as Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, has a friendly chat with contraversial talk-show host Michael Savage, in O'Reilly's Bar and Restaurant in San Francisco's North Beach neighborhood. At the time Mowlan was on a visit to the United States to promote the 'Peace Process'.

Savage, was one of 16 people named on May 5, by Home Secretary Jacqui Smith, who have been banned from entering Britain. "This is someone who has fallen into the category of fomenting hatred, of such extreme views and expressing them in such a way that it is actually likely to cause inter-community tension or even violence if that person were allowed into the country," Ms Smith told BBC Breakfast.

Today, May 6, Savage has called for a boycott of British goods and announced his intention to sue.
