A petition to bar Mr Trump from Britain reached more than 300,000 signatures amid an outcry over the comments and will be considered for a debate in parliament, as are all petitions with more than 100,000 signatures.”The UK has banned entry to many individuals for hate speech. The same principles should apply to everyone who wishes to enter the UK,” the petition said.London mayor Boris Johnson called Mr Trump’s comments “complete and utter nonsense”.”I think he’s betraying a quite stupefying ignorance that makes him frankly unfit to hold the office of president of the United States,” he added.”Crime has been falling steadily both in London and in New York – the only reason I wouldn’t go to some parts of New York is the real risk of meeting Donald Trump.”
