    Active warzones where failed UK Foreign Policy has had very negative impacts, Tony Blair was never held to account for the destruction he initiated. ISIS, have attempted to attack Britain and there are many extremists already in the UK, the UK introducing such a ban would dramatically worsen an already complex situation. The lefties are not ignorant, Socialist countries such as the Nordic countries do not face the same threats we do as a result of greater inclusion and a foreign policy which does not favour interventionism.
    The problem lies with islam not Tony Blair. Yes our foreign policy hasn't been the best but what's done is done. The best thing to do is to ban moslems until the situation has calmed down. Just look at Canada, Trudeau welcomed moslems with open hands, look at the response he received. A moslem terrorist attack the next day...

    Now I'm not saying that all Moslems are terrorists but, most if not ALL terrorists are Moslem.

    Not even from a political view...but on a very basic moral level, is it actually justifiable to prevent another human being, yes someone who thinks and walks and talks from moving where they wish. Forget all biases for on moment and think about it...humans are being prevented from entering another part of the world...
    We can all agree that this world belongs to no one and borders are simply human constructs...so who decides where someone can go or not.

    You're free to your opinion, but he raises good points in my view. If he's biased, then fine, but I'm not going to simply disagree with good points he makes.

      no but for selfish reasons. it means that 2/5s of my family are now banned from the United States for holding an Iranian passport. it's far from ideal. the idea seems retarded tbh. banning a whole nation in lieu of a small proportion of actual threatening people.

      it's like when a teacher keeps the whole class back cos of like 2 miscreants.

      Why? I love my country so I wear the flag with pride. What's your problem? Would you have the same response to someone with a Pakistan flag or Islam symbol as their DP? Course you wouldn't, one rule for us and another for them.

      You're not doing a very good job. You missed off the edges of the flag.

      Trump agenda: "Asked about State Department criticism of the immigration ban, the White House Spokesman Sean Spicer said if "these career bureaucrats" had a problem with it, "they should either get with the programme or they can go.""

      "Get with the programme" is a favorite of Trump. After his election victory he talked about a split country, a divided country and how it must come together, unite. What he understands by that is people should unilaterally "just accept" he is president and let him do everything he wants, preferably mindlessly cheering him on like they do Putin, Erdogan, or Kim Jong-un.

      He thinks he may be helping America, but he is not, in fact I would say he is harming it a lot more. Wouldn't be surprised if it already has a worse reputation than under Bush.

      yes, but with a emphatic qualification:
      people from muslim countries come from very different cultures
      those culture are not only immoral by virtue of their values and norms, but also the fact that they are more adhering to violent politics
      we've seen this so much, i.e. 9/11, 7/7, the bostom bombing, the gay club shooting, the murder of cartoonists in denmark and paris (the latter obviously being je suis charle), the truck killings in france and germany, and honestly far too many to recall off of the top of my head
      it is, therefore, a reasonable fusion of one's immigration policy and national security approach to limit certain countries from entry.
      So where is the deportation of home-grown, white terrorists? Where is the banning of high school students from high school so that massacres stop?

      Lots? There are no points other than "the regressive left".

      Disgusting, and nothing but populism, pandering to what people (apparently like you) want to hear, confirming your biases.

      Definitely.

      Also keep in mind that contrary to the ******** SJWs are trying to spread, the countries were chosen by Obama's administration, not Trump's business interests.
      Not chosen. Identified as being high-risk. If the situation were reversed, Trump would tweet "fake news" to reply to you.

      The amount of homegrown Muslims in Britain is so high, if they want to attack, a ban on these countries for the UK would be of no significance.

      By that logic, what was the attack in Quebec against a mosque immediately following Trump's entry ban on 7 countries?

      Do you even think, or just so far as it supports your biases?

      No , he's just randomly picked countries in the middle east , that haven't actually had any terrorist attacks on US soil. However , he has banned Yemen and Iran , which is interesting. Iran has a nuclear deal (read 'restriction'with the united states , something Trump opposes ; so it's likely the beginning of trouble there. The united states has done so much to Yemen and Yemani people , trump probably wants to cover it up and pretend it didn't happen ; likely to blame Obama for it if it ever comes to light.
      The whole ban is a mess.
      By banning people , you create a vacuum of angry people , who have family members stuck in limbo.The risk of terrosim is likely to increase if he increases his narrative of isolating the Muslim population.If people feel alienated from society they are more likely to turn their backs on it.
      ((Also if 2.5 million syrian refugees need a place to go , and europe and the US won't take them..they will have no choice but to join IS..we don't need the islamic state to gain more members...or maybe its just me?))
      This ban will increase the growing racial and religious divides in the country. God save america ,because they're going to need as much help as they can get.
