Thousands of people protested against Donald Trumps Muslim ban, in London and across the United Kingdom. These are just a few of them and the home-made banner is particularly apposite.

The Graun has followed This Site’s lead with an article on Theresa ‘the Appeaser’ May’s intractability regarding the planned State Visit to the UK of Donald Trump.

Having made an invitation to the new US president before he had been in office for a week – and apparently without knowing that he would enact executive orders that would lead to him being branded a “fascist” by people around the world, including British MP Dennis Skinner – Mrs May doesn’t have the guts to admit she was wrong or to withdraw the invitation.

She thinks she can weather the storm at home. This Writer would like to hope that she is wrong. Share this article if you agree that ‘Theresa the Appeaser’ is weak and is letting the country down.

The weakling prime minister’s short comment is worth noting, though.

Theresa May defended the decision to invite Donald Trump on a state visit as thousands of protesters took to the streets across the UK and more than 1.5 million people signed a petition to try to stop the trip from going ahead.

The prime minister made the briefest of responses to the domestic uproar over the US president’s attempt to ban travellers from seven Muslim-majority countries, insisting that the “UK takes a different approach”.

“The United States is a close ally of the United Kingdom. We work together across many areas of mutual interest and we have that special relationship between us,” she said. “I have issued that invitation for a state visit for President Trump to the United Kingdom and that invitation stands.”
