It is deeply regrettable that Theresa May is determined to press ahead with according US President Donald Trump a state visit, ignoring the views of millions of British people.
Racism, Islamophobia, antisemitism, sexism, misogyny, homophobia, war mongering, climate change denial, attacks on human rights or policies that will deepen poverty and inequality should not be rewarded or celebrated by our government.
Most people in Britain want no part of it. We will continue to oppose this state visit – it is not in our name.
