Public Interest

Apparently the UK government has told airlines that Edward Snowden will be banned from the UK.

BBC security correspondent Gordon Corera said the Home Office does have the power block people's entry to the UK in certain circumstances, such as if it believes it is in the public interest to do so.
What, the fuck, "public interest" is being served here?

There is no public interest. Edward Snowden is zero threat to the UK public. This is nothing but a vindictive desire to put pressure on him and restrict his ability to move around the world. This is the height of pettiness  and random abuse of power by those who are now nakedly using their role in the state to advance their agenda of locking-in total unchallenged and unchallengable control for themselves (and their peers in other countries).
