The Conservative Government must now decide if it can weather the storm that would follow a decision that appears to admit that Tories support his views.
Bear in mind that this Tory Government has more – and closer – similarities with the Nazi Party under Hitler than any other UK government. Supporting Trump’s xenophobia may be the final link for a UK public that is already utterly sick of Tory discrimination.
just days after Suzanne Kelly’s e-petition went live on the parliament’s website, it has already surpassed the 100,000 signatures mark, which means MPs now have to consider debating the issue in the House of Commons.
The petition was set up on hate speech grounds in response to Trump’s call for a ban on Muslims entering the U.S., and it gained even more traction after he outrageously claimed that UK capital London is “so radicalised the police are afraid for their own lives”.

According to the BBC, Home Secretary Theresa May can ban an individual from the UK if she considers their presence is “not conducive to the public good or if their exclusion is justified on public policy grounds”. In recent years the UK has barred entry to the American rapper Tyler the Creator and anti-mosque campaigner Pamela Geller, among others.
