There is growing fury here at the proposed State Visit by President Trump.
Our toadying, lickspittle Prime Minister has invited this odious, repulsive man over and intends to afford him full ceremonial honours. The decision has sparked mass demonstrations all over the country.
The official government website, U Gov, has a public petition facility and states that any petition that gathers 100'000 signatures will be considered for debate in Parliament. The petition demanding that Trump be denied entry into Great Britain has gathered 1.5 million signatures (and counting) in less than 24 hours.
Despite this clear and unmistakable signal from the people, the Home Secretary commented last night that this issue will not be debated in the house. Teresa May said last night that she will be "Very happy" to welcome Trump on behalf of the Queen.
A large and angry (but peaceful) crowd gathered in Whitehall last night
NO to Trump visit
and anger is increasingly being directed personally at Teresa May who is already losing popularity for the way she is cosying up to the President. We've seen this before. This is Blair/Bush all over again. We suffered too much from getting too close to an American President in the last decade. You'd think our politicians would have learned from that.
Trumps racist policies are not what we stand for. We don't agree with them and we do not want to hand Trump the propaganda coup of being formally received by Her Majesty.
Trump is a reviled, racist, neo-fascist and he isn't wanted here. And as one Jewish protester said on her placard in Whitehall last night: "Anne Frank could have been an 87-year-old living in Boston today but she was denied a Visa."
The thought that the Queen might have to shake hands with this repugnant man, and afford him the dignity of full ceremonial honours is not what the British people want. If I were her, I'd meet him with a peg on my nose.
We don't want the global image of our gracious sovereign majesty being blighted by association with this disgusting individual.
He should stay put behind his wall.
Don't come here, Mr President. You're not welcome.
