Will the UK Bar Trump?

Amusingly, the Brits have a nice way of forcing governmental and legislative issues to the forefront. It’s the formal petition process wherein a petition that receives a sufficient number of valid signatures must be brought up for consideration in the House of Commons.

Recently a petition to deny entry of Donald J. Trump into the United Kingdom received the required number of signatures. Actually, within a rather short period of time it received over five times the needed number.

Parliament is now obligated to debate the issue and the Home Secretary (Theresa May) will be obligated to take any recommendation into consideration. The office of the Home Secretary issued a statement affirming that she “may exclude a non-European Economic Area national from the UK if she considers their presence in the UK to be non-conducive to the public good.”

If Trump is barred it will have a significant impact on his campaign for the GOP nomination. It will, I predict, increase his popularity with Republican primary voters by at least 10 points.
