    Default U.K. Parliament debates on banning Donald Trump from visiting the country
    U.K. Parliament debates: Donald Trump’s ‘buffoonery’ doesn’t need a ban

    By Griff Witte January 18 at 1:47 PM

    LONDON — Debate began Monday in the British Parliament over whether to ban U.S. Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump from visiting the United Kingdom.

    The debate, which was started by an online petition that described Trump’s comments about Muslims as “hate speech,” will not produce any binding decisions. Authority to ban someone from the country rests with the home secretary, not with Parliament. But the debate will give British lawmakers an unusual chance to weigh in directly on U.S. politics.

    Not this again!

    Don't ban him, no point and it's a ridiculous petition.

    The principal of disagreeing but not necessarily subjugating is an annoying one, but I guess it does have importance like many say.
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    "Suppose it didn't," said Pooh, after careful thought.
    Piglet was comforted by this.

    Maybe we in the UK could do the opposite. Let him into the UK and refuse to let him go home

    I don't want to spoil the party but I am pretty sure he simply doesn't care about this.
