A PETITION demanding that US presidential wannabe Donald Trump be barred from Britain for hate speech secured consideration for parliamentary debate after soaring past the required 100,000 signatures to 253,700.

The billionaire Republican was branded a fascist after he said US Muslims should carry ID cards stating their religion and then that Muslims should be barred from the US.

Mr Trump even claimed that parts of London were “so radicalised” that police officers were “afraid for their own lives.”

Downing Street has declined to say whether his comments might lead to him being barred under hate speech law.

“We know Mr Trump does not represent the views of ordinary Americans and we reject his ignorant remarks,” said a spokesman for the Muslim Council of Britain, offering to treat the property mogul for lunch if he visited London and give him a tour of so-called “no-go Muslim areas.”

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said the remarks were an “affront to common humanity” and it is only right that people “unite against racism.”
