Government 'recognises' anger at Donald Trump comments



The government has responded to a petition calling for presidential hopeful Donald Trump to be banned from the UK after he proposed a temporary halt on Muslims entering the US.




"The home secretary may exclude a non-European Economic Area national from the UK if she considers their presence in the UK to be non-conducive to the public good," it said, adding that Theresa May had said coming to the UK was "a privilege and not a right".


Not sure how this is being reported in the USA

It's an interesting response from the UK Government, a tacit acknowledgement if you will of wider public opinion.

Of course, the establishment isn't likely to ban a potential US presidential candidate from the UK... yet.

Should Trump not get the GOP nomination, and drop out of the race, I can imagine the decision may be re-visited.

If he says anything else that causes a public backlash in the UK (and frankly, on a global scale) during his campaign the decision may also need to be looked at again.

I, for one, am glad that someone, officially, said SOMETHING about this looney toon.

I think they are jealous he is not a candidate for Prime Minister.

They cannot get over the fact that what he says in public, is what many people say among each other when the camera is not on them.

No flies on the Donald. One risky and clever person indeed.

We have our own idiots thank you.

If we wanted one on that level we would use Boris Johnson.

Over half a million people signed the petition but many(myself included) did so because it seemed like a funny thing to do.

Jelous?

No we just know the damage facists can do.


In fact we had a candidate like him a few years back called nick griffin. And he got barely any votes so the UK population has had a chance for a trump and we said no.

There is a reason people don't say the sorts of things he does in public. Why would someone want to be known to be ignorant, uninformed and lacking basic communication skills?

He's an ass and most people strive to be a bit better than that.

Then again, there are a lot of people that are ignorant, uninformed and lack basic communication skills. So I can see why he appeals to some.

I did it because he is a walking security risk and dont want to see police and MI5 resources wasted protecting his sorry arse.

I'm guessing you have no idea of the global backlash against his comments?

That or don't care.

Fact is, your countries #1 ally has seriously considered banning your next potential president from its shores.

That should be something of a wake up call really, but if you want hatred to cloud your better judgement, then so be it I guess.

All this does is give Trump more press. That he will spin.

I'm not a big fan of his but he does seem to be able to use this kind of petty BS to his advantage.

It seems that your understanding of world politics rivals your Idols then.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but the Queen has nothing to do with this.

This was everyday British people and politicians exercising their right to free speech, because they found something a US presidential candidate said to be abhorrent.

trump will never represent me or my values. he is the antithesis of all that i value about this country. if not for the first amendment i would advocate silencing him.

I think it says more about us than it does about him, we don't like what he says, ok let's ban him from the country.

It's censorship at its core and while I disagree with what he says and think he's an idiot when it comes to politics I don't think we should censor him from our country

It sets us on a very slippery slope where we begin banning plenty of other people just because a vocal minority (500k is a minority number compared to the population) are offended by someone says

Would it not be better to let him in ? Challenge his views with logic and reason rather just ban him with no chance of changing his mindset or making him see sense ?

I doubt those in control of the US would care.

I have the feeling the US government is very good at blackmail and even better with threats carried out.

It's hope and change all over again.

Too many people are so caught-up in the messenger that they fail to hear the message.

Perhaps you missed the news that Jimmy Carter did the same exact policy implemented on Iranians?

Kind of takes your hyperbole to new heights?

Now I do not understand what you are saying in response to him not knowing what you are saying.

What are you saying?

It appears that even you do not seem sure?
