Our major cities have been in existence for a greater amount of time than your country has had a flag, and we will elect to run them precisely who we see fit, to run them in a manner in accordance with our preferences, not the frankly mindless, reductionist waffle we hear from US Mayors, and for that matter other political figures from the US.

“The alacrity with which Trump has put in place, by presidential decree, a swathe of openly racist, xenophobic, misogynistic and homophobic measures, together with the president’s total disregard for existing US commitments under international law, indicate that the British government’s decision to renew its ‘special relationship’ with the United States at this time can only lead, in the short-term, to further suffering and discrimination. “We can only hope that this self-serving programme will, in the long-term, set in motion a demand for real change that governments and communities across the world will be forced to answer.” The letter ends by calling on No 10 “not only to cancel Trump’s invitation to visit the UK but also, and more fundamentally, to withdraw the support of the British government for the United States more generally until these indefensible policies have been reversed and disavowed. “If you do not, we fear that the United Kingdom will find itself, like Trump, on the wrong side of history, with extremely worrying consequences for us all.”
