By BI: Legendary British Commentator, Pat Condell, weighs in on the Trump effect, free speech, and Britain’s efforts to silence the man who could become president.
CNN The quixotic but popular push to ban the Republican presidential candidate from the United Kingdom is set to be debated in Parliament, a spokeswoman for the House of Commons said. 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.
After Trump launched his proposal to temporarily halt the immigration of Muslims into the United States, Prime Minister David Cameron called the billionaire “stupid” and “three times a loser.”
