    The problem with all you little snowflakes is that Trump has taken the decision to put his own countrymen first …from start to finish .ITs a shame out prime minister does not do the same …not got the balls ..well TRUMP HAS …ONCE WE LEAVE THE EU MAYBE WE SHOULD BECOME A VASSEL OF THE USA . NO NEED FOR TRADE DEAL THEN …the vast majority of people in the developed nations {usa,uk etc} have lost under globalisation jobs pride etc ..so we can save a few quid on tax etc .

    For 25 years, almost completely ignored except in relation to the Iraq War, a section of the political Left and a smaller section of the political Right have consistently opposed the racist, militarist and imperialist policies of the Clinton, Bush, Obama and Trump Administrations. For 20 years, almost completely ignored except in relation to the Iraq War, a section of the political Left and a smaller section of the political Right have consistently opposed the racist, militarist and imperialist policies of the Blair, Brown, Cameron and May Governments.

    A steadfast stalwart has been, and remains, Jeremy Corbyn. His election and re-election as Labour Leader have been significant victories for the movement against liberal interventionism. Another victory was the social media campaign that led to the lobbying of the House of Commons such that it defeated the Cameron Government over Syria. Therefore, it is not correct to say that, “They never did Stop the War.”

    In the event of a State Visit to the United Kingdom by President Donald Trump, it is imperative that those with that consistent, and not unsuccessful, record be the organisers of what would easily be the largest demonstration in British history, and that that demonstration be addressed by Mr Corbyn. This would have the potential to politicise an entire generation, thereby changing Britain in myriad ways over at least 50 years. But it would have to be led by those who would have reacted in the same way to a State Visit by President Hillary Clinton.

    Trump gets a grip with Islamic Nazi Fascists and the braindead looney tune left protest. There never really was not much of a difference between the hard left and far right. Their antipathy towards Jews and Israel seems consistent.
