Stupid parliament

Today, rather than spending their time debating issues of actual importance, the UK Parliament decided to allocate three hours of their limited time to debate the subject of whether Donald Trump should be banned from setting foot in the United Kingdom.

Let’s say they decide to ban him.  Does anyone think he actually cares? Does anyone think it’ll actually harm his chances on voting day? Does anyone doubt that if Trump wins the election they’ll fall all over themselves to backpedal such a silly and childish action?

If it happens, Trump’s response will undoubtedly be some variation of, “Who cares. The UK? They’re irrelevant.” With one sanctimonious outburst, the United Kingdom will have lowered itself from “no greater friend” status of the George W. Bush era, to “who cares.” Talk about effective democracy.

Incidentally, as I proofread this post and double-checked some of the info, I learned that this debate isn’t even binding! It’s 100% posturing, pure and simple.
