Trumped To Be Banned From The UK?


Courtesy of The BBC:

A petition on the UK Parliament’s website calling for Trump to be banned from entering the country attracted more than 100,000 signatures in about a day, making it eligible to be considered for debate in Parliament. “The signatories believe Donald J Trump should be banned from UK entry,” it says, and calls for Trump to be excluded because of “hate speech”.

“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,” states the petition, which was reportedly drafted by Suzanne Kelly, a woman who opposed Trump’s development of a golf course in Aberdeenshire. The petition is getting heavy support from Aberdeenshire and surrounding areas in Scotland, as well as London and other major UK cities, according to a map on the Parliament website.

This is more like it. I can’t waited for it to be debated in Parliament.

Could Donald Trump be banned from the UK?

  • Labour home affairs spokesman Jack Dromey and Green Party leader Natalie Bennett have backed the petition to ban Trump from entering the country, with Conservative MP Sarah Wollaston saying the proposal merited “serious discussion”.
  • The Home Office has powers to ban speakers from overseas coming to the UK under the “unacceptable behaviours or extremism exclusion policy”.
  • Last year, Home Secretary Theresa May said she had excluded “hundreds” of people.
  • People banned from entering the UK under the exclusion policy in recent years include leaders of the Westboro Baptist Church, Islamist preachers and Ku Klux Klan officials, and two anti-Muslim bloggers.


This has the potential to get very interesting! The petition already has over 143,000 signatures.

    Trump, the GOP’s White Elephant
    A white elephant is a possession which its owner cannot dispose of and whose cost, particularly that of maintenance, is out of proportion to its usefulness.

    Buzzfeed Reports:
    “A spokesperson for the Scottish government said: “Mr Trump’s recent remarks have shown that he is no longer fit to be a business ambassador for Scotland and the first minister has decided his membership of the respected GlobalScot business network should be withdrawn with immediate effect.”
    -Trump, whose mother was from the Isle of Lewis off the west coast of Scotland, was awarded the ambassador role by then first minister Jack McConnell.

      Pulled his honorary degree also too!

      London (AFP) – The Scottish government sacked US presidential hopeful Donald Trump as a business ambassador and a university revoked his honorary degree on Wednesday after he called for a ban on Muslims entering the United States.
      A petition to bar the Republican frontrunner from Britain reached more than 358,000 signatures amid an outcry over comments by the tycoon, who owns golf courses in Scotland and has family links to the country.”

      No love for the Donald in Scotland….

    I have a Ph. D in Biochemistry. I can tell you how to cross-link proteins and how proteins denature, but I cannot understand one thing about all of these delegates and the brokered convention.
