Welcome to illuminati silver, we tell you
the truth about silver. Today is Wednesday 9th December 2015 and we
are covering very briefly an update on the recently announced UK Donald Trump Petition.
At the time of producing this video, a petition calling for Republican Presidential Candidate
Donald Trump to be barred from entering the UK has gathered more than 329,000 signatures,
so MPs will have to consider debating it. Any petition with more than 100,000 signatures
is automatically considered for debate in Parliament.
The petition recorded on Parliament’s e-petition website just yesterday reads:
“Block Donald J Trump from UK entry” – “The UK has banned entry to many individuals for
hate speech. The same principles should apply to everyone who wishes to enter the UK. “If
the United Kingdom is to continue applying the ‘unacceptable behaviour’ criteria to those
who wish to enter its borders, it must be fairly applied to the rich as well as poor,
and the weak as well as the powerful.” It was posted in response to Mr Trump’s call
for a temporary halt on Muslims entering the United States.
Since then an absolute chorus of voices have come out criticising him.
Chancellor George Osborne criticised Mr Trump’s comments but rejected calls for him to be
banned from the UK. Mr Osborne told the Commons that the remarks by Mr Trump flew in the face
of America’s founding principles and “were not welcome”.
Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has stripped Mr Trump of his status as a Business
Ambassador for Scotland. Aberdeen’s Robert Gordon University has revoked
Mr Trump’s honorary degree, which he received in 2010 in recognition of his achievements
as an entrepreneur and businessman. One of the Middle East’s largest retail chains,
Lifestyle, has withdrawn Donald Trump products from its shelves following his comments.
Labour home affairs spokesman Jack Dromey and Green Party leader Natalie Bennett have
backed the petition to ban Trump from entering the country, with Conservative MP Sarah Wollaston
saying the proposal merited “serious discussion”. London Mayor, Boris Johnson said “Donald Trump’s
ill-informed comments are complete and utter nonsense. As a city where more than 300 languages
are spoken, London has a proud history of tolerance and diversity and to suggest there
are areas where police officers cannot go because of radicalisation is simply ridiculous.”
The Home Office has powers to ban speakers from overseas coming to the UK under the “unacceptable
behaviours or extremism exclusion policy”. Home Secretary Theresa May can exclude an
individual if she considers their presence is “not conducive to the public good or if
their exclusion is justified on public policy grounds”. According to the BBC – People banned
from entering the UK under the exclusion policy in recent years include leaders of the Westboro
Baptist Church, Islamist preachers and Ku Klux Klan officials, and two anti-Muslim bloggers.
Downing Street said it was not aware of any plans for the billionaire businessman to visit,
so any question of a ban on him coming to Britain was “hypothetical”.
It should be noted however, that while a Parliamentary debate is a good way to raise the profile
of an issue with lawmakers, it does not automatically follow that there will be a change in the
law. In 2015 there were 14 petitions debated in Parliament, but none directly brought about
any change in UK laws. Interestingly, If Mr Trump was eventually
banned and then actually became President of the United States– with Britain being
it’s so called ‘closest ally’ it would prove quite fascinating to witness what would
then materialise. We hope you have found this video helpful
