YESTERDAY virtue signalling wet wipes in the Labour Party called for Trump’s state visit to be BANNED.
Labour MP, Chris Byrant and Paul Flynn even called for Mr Trump to be ARRESTED at Airport Security for inciting racial hatred and others said Mr Trump was not a “fit and proper leader” to meet Her Maj.
But their argument falls as flat as Hillary Clinton’s race to 270 as it is revealed The Queen, who has reigned in Britain since 1953, has hosted Terrorists, Tyrants, former enemies of Britain and even leaders accused of serious human rights abuses and WAR CRIMES.
In 2014 the Queen hosted Ex-IRA commander Martin McGuinness who was a special guest of the Queen during a state banquet at Windsor Castle.
Relatives of victims of the 1974 Birmingham bomb protested outside Windsor Castle and the sister of a woman killed in the 1974 Birmingham pub bombings called for the arrest of Mr McGuinness.
Julie Hambleton, whose 18-year-old sister Maxine died in the atrocity, said she was angry at the British establishment for giving “permission” to Mr McGuinness to “come on to the mainland”.
She told the BBC at the time “By rights he should be arrested. He’s got so much blood on his hands.” She described his attendance at the event as “the epitome of hypocrisy”, and added: “We are absolutely outraged at the British establishment.”
Other unsavoury guests include President Bashar Al-Assad of Syria – He and British-born wife Asma dined with the Queen at Buckingham Palace in December 2002.
Al Assad has allegedly supported Palestinian and Islamic terror groups and Assad has used banned CHEMICAL WEAPONS on Women and Children and has used barrel bombs during Syria’s long-running civil war.
Another Dictator, President Xi Jinping of China who rules China without free and fair elections, and his wife Peng Liyuan met the Queen and Prince Philip in 2015 and enjoyed a state banquet.
Amnesty International, pro-Tibet campaigners and followers of the Falun Gong spiritual practice, BANNED in China, were present on The Mall in central London during a procession.
Russian Prez Vladimir Putin was also invited to Britain in June 2003 by Tony Blair, who admired Putin as a ‘moderniser’, took place three years before the murder of Russian dissident Alexander Litvinenko in London, allegedly by Russian agents, which ruined relations with Moscow.
Recently deposed Zimbabwean leader, Robert Mugabe also received a state visit. Mr Mugabe was blamed for the massacre of 10,000 people in the 1980s, long before his visit to Britain in May 1994 – he was welcomed as a trading partner and for his ‘influence on peace’ in Africa.
Mugabe was greeted by Princess Margaret at Heathrow and taken by Rolls Royce to meet the Queen and Tory PM John Major. He accompanied the monarch in a five-minute procession by carriage to Buckingham Palace. Mugabe was also made an honorary KCB during the visit. He was later stripped of the honour.
President Nicolae Ceausescu of Romania visited the Queen in 1978. Ceausescu and his wife were SHOT DEAD by thier own Army during the fall of the eastern bloc in 1989.
Dissidents from Romania who had fled the Communist regime were outraged at his visit in June 1978. Then Labour government wanted to broker a deal with Romania to co-produce aeroplanes.
Shortly before their arrival, French president Valery Giscard d’Estaing telephoned the Queen to warn that Ceausescu and his wife Elena had walked off with valuables from their staterooms on a visit to Paris.
President Mobutu Sese Seko of the congo: The dictator, who visited in December 1973, presided over the collapse of his country’s economy and locked up dissidents.
He was later found to have embezzled £12 billion, and was blamed for the deaths of 230,000 people, he also was greeted by The Queen.
Don’t make me laugh.
