Yes, they should be banned.Although we may not think much of Trump he is the President of the USA and his office should be respected.
Yawn
We had this discussion back in July 2018.
I find the whole businesses of the blimp disgusting, distasteful,disgraceful and totally out of order in welcoming the President of the United States whoever he/she may be.
He is a guest of the UK for that period of stay and should be treated with respect that any guest would be afforded.


A few idiots complaining pales into insignificance against the millions who voted for him - especially as they dont even live in his country. Do you see Americans demonstrating against May - just pointless. Costing the taxpayer money and inconveniencing the ordinary public.
The only this is likely to stir up is getting some Trump
supporters annoyed.
Not quite the same thing.
Yes it’s a bit infantile but some might say that is therefore appropriate ....
He’s had far worse protests in his own country: I doubt if he’ll even notice it.
flying a blimp showing Trump in a nappy will stir up hatred? It seems more likely to stir up giggling.

I'm sure it wouldn't be allowed in Moscow, Tehran or Pyongyang; why should London be any different from these great world centres of civilisation?

"Yes it’s a bit infantile but some might say that is therefore appropriate ...."

That confuses me and i do not understand what you mean....when is infantile, ever appropriate when one is discussing visits from heads of State?
Courtesy and diplomacy seem to be the key words in such visits.
You’re trying to conflate the banning of far right demonstrations which stir up RACIAL hatred (crucial word missing from your headline, to suit your own warped views) with demonstrations against a president.

Even you must surely be able to see the welding together of these two things doesn’t work?

//The only this is likely to stir up is getting some Trump

if the group succeed in one of their stated aims, ie to paralyse London for the best part of the day, they'll pee off a great deal more people than a handful of Trump supporters.
Yes but these protesters won’t go out and injure anyone who looks like trump unlike the far right protesters who want people to go and hurt anyone who isn’t white
Fly the blimp .
At least the USA have got a leader, what we got?
I've never yet known a demo paralyse London, despite living here for decades. If you want to paralyse even a few streets, road works are your best bet.
j no //I've never yet known a demo paralyse London,//
Have you forgotten the climate protesters blockading parts of London?
Courtesy and diplomacy are entirely appropriate from the appropriate quarters.
But that doesn’t mean we all have to comply. That applies to whoever is visiting. We aren’t, as jno indicates, North Korea, China or Russia.
Nor do we execute our failed negotiators :-)

Don't you realise that there will be many none white demonstrators, so it could also be classed as 'Racial Hatred' or does it only work one way?

It certainly would have been wheeled out, if the demonstrations had been against a State Visit by the previous President.

Hatred is hatred, no matter for what reason
no, dannyk. But I was not remotely paralysed. Not even a twinge in my big toe.
