Sure
but be ready if something goes wrong
Fireworks can be deadly fired at you
Police may block you
on security grounds.

I hope all goes well.
and maybe Live TV News cameras
will help protect all.
SkyNewsHD /ITV1HD News / Ch4HD News
CNN HD/ CBSnewsHD.

not so sure about BBC
already today in Manchester
they only had audio
did not show the protesters
pulled the cameras well back.


Maybe BBC1 London Local News
from 6:30PM may go Live

Protest all you want


Trump is booked for the British Visit
the PM has Confirmed
No one can stop the USA President
you are fools if you think a protest
makes any bleedin' difference
to be honest

I signed at 7:30 this morning and it was 929,120 and one hour later its 947,643 but its going up as I type. It's a bit like a witnessing a casino machine rack up a big win.

I've never seen anything like it!
I'm sure it'll stop Trumps visit to the UK.

I think it's all abit silly really tbh.Theresa May has just been over there for a start.
We might not like him but he is our ally like it or not and officially we have to be atleast civil with him.
Plus we've had much worse people than Trump visit.
Suppose this petition and protest actually worked.....So what?
What does it achieve other than annoying the president of the USA?

This seems petty and rather dumb to me. When has excluding someone ever really worked to change their opinions? It would be better to let him visit and have dialogue with him.

Why on earth is shutting the door in his face the right way to go when you are more or less doing the same thing he is?

If we can let the President of China loose on the Queen and Putin, I don't see why why we can't foist Trump on her for a banquet.

It's ridiculous, like kids stamping their feet to try and get their own way - massive tantrum.

And the signatures have now reached over 1.5 million

Edited to add, I've put the trolls on ignore as all they do is bait for a reaction and I honestly can't be bothered.

I dunno what happened. I'm starting to think that someone kidnapped Kirk, drained out all of his charm and intelligence, but left his opinions intact, and sent him back with a new identity.

He has been officially invited, so he will get the red carpet treatment.
If it makes people feel better to protest then so be it.
As far as I can see he is carrying out what he was voted in on.

I do find it intriguing listening to some of the pomposity on here - people with over-inflated egos and full of their own perceived superior intelligence and I ask myself why are they here. Big fish in a little pond maybe.

I wonder if the petition to allow his visit will gather similar support.
Interesting to watch.
