A petition to ban President Donald Trump from visiting The UK has now received over one million signatures and the UK parliament has just agreed to immediately hold a three-hour debate on the decision.

Since we posted yesterday the signature count has risen from 400,000 to 1.4 million…

As AP reports, MPs have been granted an emergency debate in the Commons to discuss Donald Trump’s controversial travel ban.

The application from Labour’s Ed Miliband was backed by Commons Speaker John Bercow after Tory MPs such as Nadhim Zahawi and Sarah Wollaston joined opposition MPs in supporting the move.

It follows Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson’s statement to the House after the new US president put in place a travel ban on refugees and citizens from several mainly-Muslim countries.

The debate will last for three hours and is expected to finish at around 9pm.
