UK: MPs clash over Trump visit

Source: BBC News [UK state media]

“MPs have clashed over whether Donald Trump should be given a state visit to the UK in a packed Westminster debate. Protesters gathered outside as Labour’s Paul Flynn said it would be ‘terribly wrong’ to go ahead with the visit. But Tory Nigel Evans told the US president’s critics to ‘get over it’ and that plans would not be changed. The debate was triggered by two petitions — one against a state visit, which got 1.85 million signatures, and one in favour which got 311,000.” (02/20/17)
