Popular Everywhere

The Greens are moving to block Donald Trump from visiting Australia, claiming that his racist and xenophobic policies and opinions, and his contempt for the rule of law, ought to bar him from getting a visa.

They want to amend Australia’s visa laws to give parliament the power to block any foreign leader from entering Australia on the grounds of character, saying their amendment has been designed with the US president in mind.


The Greens leader, Richard Di Natale, told Guardian Australia this week that he wanted to use the first week of parliament of 2017 calling for a renegotiation of the Australia-US alliance, saying it no longer served the country’s interest.

I wonder if they would have such a strong view had T-Rump not called Australia's deal-making over refugees "dumb".

...but hey, do what you will anyway.
