Opinion: Corbyn doesn't speak for Britain - we want Trump here

talkRADIO host Mike Graham says Jeremy Corbyn is acting childishly by protesting Donald Trump's three-day state visit. These are his views and not talkRADIO's.

Donald Trump will be meeting Theresa May and having breakfast with business leaders during his visit.

He will be telling Theresa May, "Thanks very much for being Prime Minister of Great Britain", "Thanks very much for being the Prime Minister of such a great ally of ours" and "I'm so glad I'm here to help commemorate and celebrate the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings".

What will the leader of the opposition be doing?

The leader of the opposition, Jeremy Corbyn, a well-known professional agitator, will be taking part in a demonstration in the middle of Parliament Square against the visit by the president of the United States; perhaps our greatest ally and trading partner.

Jeremy Corbyn is, quite frankly, an idiot.

He is behaving like someone who is on a school demonstration away for the weekend. Behaving like someone who is in student politics. He is behaving like somebody from the Socialist Worker Party, and Emily Thornberry is not much better.

They are all going to stand underneath a balloon which is supposed to be mocking Donald Trump. They couldn't even make a new one after using it last year. There will also be a Donald Trump effigy sitting on a toilet.

The ridiculous situation here is this: Vince Cable says he speaks for Britain, and Britain doesn't want Donald Trump here. He is wrong.

Jeremy Corbyn says he speaks for Britain. He doesn't think Donald Trump should be getting a state visit. He is also wrong.

Then we have got all the other people who come out from the Labour Party and say "We are not the allies of the United States of America".

"We don't mind the fact that Donald Trump is the president of the US, we just don't want to talk to him. We will pretend he doesn't exist," they say.

Donald Trump looks rather serene while Sadiq Khan is telling everyone London doesn't want him. 

Sadiq Khan is the guy that London doesn't want.
