Petition to stop Donald Trump visiting UK passes 1 million signatures

Following Trump’s Muslim ban, the folks in the UK aren’t happy and want to stop a state visit by him

The reasons stated on the petition?

“Donald Trump’s well documented misogyny and vulgarity disqualifies him from being received by Her Majesty the Queen or the Prince of Wales. Therefore during the term of his presidency Donald Trump should not be invited to the United Kingdom for an official State Visit.”



I believe the UK government now has to discuss whether to hold a debate on this and then whether to pass any judgement on the merits of the petition. It’s likely that nothing will come of it but even in the time it has taken me to write this post, the amount of signatures has risen from 1.030m to 1.047m.
