And Stay Out

The British Parliament is set to debate a bill that would ban Donald Trump from setting foot on that sceptred isle.

The debate has been scheduled for January 18 in Westminster Hall, where any member of Parliament is allowed to participate.

An online citizen’s petition to ban Trump from the United Kingdom garnered more than 568,000 signatures, well above the 100,000 threshold required for a measure to be considered for a debate, since being filed on December 8.

The petition says that because the country has banned entry to people for “hate speech” before, “the same principles should apply to everyone who wishes to enter the UK.”

Words have consequences, and Mr. Trump just doesn’t know when to STFU.
