Chatting away: But so far the Tory leader has been silent on the actions of the US President [Image: Reuters].

Theresa May won’t be cancelling Donald Trump’s state visit to the UK – but that doesn’t mean we should not demand it.

The UK prime minister is a weak leader – possibly the weakest since Neville Chamberlain, whose policy of “appeasement” for Nazi Germany nearly led to disaster for the world.

She knows that Brexit will leave the country alone in a cutthroat world – competitive due to neoliberal policies that her own party has supported for more than 40 years.

She knows that she isn’t strong enough to regenerate the strength of the UK as an industrial nation – Tories have been grinding down our industries for decades.

So she knows she needs to get support from a stronger country – and Tories have always looked to the US.

It doesn’t matter that the US President is a supporter of neo-Nazis, who thinks they have “fine people” among their numbers.

Because we have returned to the politics of appeasement. And we all know how that works out.

We, on the other hand, should continue demanding that she reject Mr Trump.

It’s the right thing to do because his views are abhorrent (obviously).

It’s right because the UK must not become subordinate to a rabidly right-wing US.

And it’s right because it causes extreme embarrassment to Theresa May and her weakling government.

Theresa May is facing fresh demands to cancel Donald Trump’s state visit to Britain after her office failed to condemn the US President.

Trump shocked the world … with a public meltdown claiming there were “fine people” at a white supremacist rally and condemning “very violent” people protesting against it.

The President blamed “both sides” for violence at the Charlottesville rally – trashing his own long-awaited condemnation of neo-Nazis – despite a white nationalist protester allegedly killing an anti-racism protester by mowing her down with a car.

On Monday, at which point Trump had still not condemned protesters who chanted “Jews will not replace us” and Nazi slogan “blood and soil”, Theresa May’s official spokesman refused to comment on his claims.
