This is the most civilised expression of the United Kingdom’s discontent that the Conservative Government can expect. It’s all downhill from here.

There is a petition on the UK Parliament website, demanding that Donald Trump be prevented from making any state visits to this country.

Written and submitted before the new US President started taking the United States down the easy road to fascism – and before the UK’s prime minister, Theresa May, supported him in that aim, it states simply that “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”.

Well, we’ve all seen the kind of president Herr Drumpf intends to be, and as a result, the rate at which this petition is being signed has accelerated massively.

It was at more than 1,000 a minute, just before 1900 (GMT). I’ve got the page open as I type and I think the rate may have increased again. Current total at the time of writing is more than 650,000.

If you haven’t signed it and want to, please visit the petition site here.

It seems the people of the UK want to make their position perfectly clear. This may be the first-ever government e-petition to get a majority of our population in favour of it.
