Michael van der Galien was born in the Dutch city of Leeuwarden in 1984. For as long as he can remember, he has been obsessed with the United States. When he was 17 years old, he started blogging - of course about America. His articles have been published at Big Hollywood, Pajamas Media, Hot Air (the GreenRoom) and Right Across The Atlantic. He's also an editor for the Dutch conservative blog, De Dagelijkse Standaard.

Anjem Choudary sparked dismay with plans to parade through the town famous for honouring service personnel killed in Afghanistan.

Civic leaders begged the leader of of Islam4UK, a branch of the extremist al-Muhajiroun movement, to reconsider his proposal for 500 members to walk up the Wiltshire town’s High Street, carrying empty coffins.

Speaking on Radio 4′s Today programme Mr Choudary defended the plans and admitted he had chosen Wooton Bassett because it would attract maximum attention.
