    Will it do any good Mike? Theresa May does not care “WHAT WE ALL WANT”
    I do not personally think she cares, IT WILL GO AHEAD. Hopefully all of our dreams will come true, And someone will take him out.

    The first victims of Hitler were the disabled and people without mental health problems. Just has chrchill wanted too eugenics is alive and well in Britain. Do not get distracted by conservative smoke and mirrors

    Yes and then everything will be ignored and the visit will go ahead, all that will happen is that people will be able to voice their concerns, which of course will fall on deaf ears, that is how I see it, I might be wrong but the Tories have a track record for giving lip-service and then at the end of the day nothing is resolved.

    If trump does come here it would be fantastic if no-one turned up in the streets to greet him, that would be the only saving grace to this cr***y situation!!!

      A Daily Heil editorial doing a David-Cameron-impersonating-Michael-Winner impersonation?
      That’s “much needed perspective” to you, is it?
      It’s hysterical to the rest of us.

      Not nearly as popular, is it?
      I understand both will be debated and have to wonder whether our Parliament, that has paid so much lip-service to democracy regarding the EU referendum, will end up dismissing the more popular of the two petitions while still claiming to uphold democracy.
