Unbelievable.

Trump is nothing more than an indiot. But you shouldn't be able to ban people from a county for being an idiot.

They do have more important things to discuss, but there was a parliament petition on it and they are obliged to discuss any point that gets more than 100,000 signatures.

100,000 signatures isn't even a lot I could probably get that amount calling for banning anime in the United Kingdom.

Why waste their time lmao we don't elect a parliament to mess around they get paid enough for that already

Well, they're following the law, really. There's an argument that e-petitions are a waste of time or the threshold's too low. But you're not going to win votes by proposing to abolish them or increase the number of signatures needed.

They can't pick and choose when to ignore a law.

Hi Everyone,

I hope you don't mind me joining this conversation? I'm the House of Commons representative in The Student Room and I just wanted to clarify some misconceptions about e-petitions debates.

Petitions that reach 100,000 signatures on petition.parliament.uk are not guaranteed a debate in the House of Commons. The Petitions Committee takes the threshold of 100,000 signatures as a starting point when it considers which petitions should be debated. Sometimes the Committee might not put forward a petition for debate if it’s got over 100,000 signatures – for example, if the same subject has recently been debated or if a debate is going to happen soon or may sometimes decide to schedule debates for petitions under this threshold.

In deciding which petitions should be debated, the Petitions Committee takes into account how many people have signed the petition, the topicality of the issue raised, and whether the issue has recently been debated in Parliament. A decision to debate a petition is not an indication that the Petitions Committee supports it.

I thought they HAD to once a certain number of signatures was reached.

That was why I really wished people didn't sign that bloody stupid one after the Paris attacks asking to close the borders until IS had been defeated. It was signed by people that clearly didn't know what a "closed border" was, would be laughed out of parliament and diminished the value of petitions.

Firstly, thank you for taking the time to clear this up. I always thought 100, 000 signature automatically made it get debated.

The point I'd like to make however, in light of this, is that the Petitions Committee is an absolute joke if they actually made the decision to have this Trump thing debated. It actually makes everyone involved look even worse if that's possible.

The Petitions Committee would have been criticised either way.

He explicitly banned people of specific religions from his rallies. If Trump enters the UK, there will probably be riots.

If not riots, then major disruptions from demonstrators and protestors.

Besides, the debate was held because a petition obtained enough signatures. It's protocol to debate most petitions once they receive a certain number of signatures.
