U.K. Parliament Will Debate Banning Donald Trump From the Country

For calling a Muslim spade a spade. I can’t imagine they’d really do this. Trump may well be our next President. Time:

Ministers will consider whether to stop the GOP presidential nominee from entering the country on Jan. 18

The United Kingdom Parliament will debate banning GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump from the country later this month.

Ministers will consider whether or not to prohibit Trump from entering the country Jan. 18 after a petition to Parliament calling for a ban gained more than half a million signatures. The UK has banned entry to many individuals for hate speech,” the petition reads. “If the United Kingdom is to continue applying the ‘unacceptable behaviour’ criteria to those who wish to enter its borders, it must be fairly applied to the rich as well as poor, and the weak as well as powerful.”

Trump has courted controversy by calling for a ban on Muslims entering the United States and promising to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border to keep illegal immigrants out of the country. The proposals have been derided by critics in the U.K., including Prime Minister David Cameron.

The British government noted in a response to the petition that it may exclude a non-European person from the country if their presence is considered “non-conducive to the public good.” Other prominent Americans to have been banned from the U.K. include anti-Islam campaigner Pamela Geller [and Robert Spencer] and conservative radio host Michael Savage. However, Cameron has said in the past he doesn’t believe Trump should be banned from the country.
