More than half a million Brits want to deny the US presidential candidate Donald Trump entry to Britain. They have signed a government petition and now British politicians are forced to discuss the matter in Parliament.
- It is absurd that the Parliament's precious time is wasted by debating the matter, is the reaction from Trump's organization in Scotland.
The petition arose in the wake of Trump's comments at the end of last year, that Muslims should be denied entry to the United States.
The British government responds to all campaigns that get over 10,000 signatures, and if the petition gets over 100,000 signatures, it may be subject to debate in parliament.
Over 500,000 want to deny the estate mogul entry to the UK, and Monday is set for debate in Westminster.
However, no voting will not take place, since only Secretary of State for the Home Department, Theresa May, can issue a no-entry order for Trump.
David Cameron criticized Trump's Muslim-comments but will not ban the man who is trying to become the Republican presidential candidate.
Trump has in turn threatened to scrap planned investments in Scottish golf courses worth over $1 billion unless he gets access to the UK.
