Quote of the Day

From a later (see below) House of Commons special debate sought by Ed Miliband on the Trump visa ban --

Mr Angus Brendan MacNeil (Na h-Eileanan an Iar [Western Isles/Outer Hebrides]) (SNP) 

 Has the right hon. Gentleman noted that Donald Trump’s mother was a migrant? She was not just from Scotland but from my constituency. Donald Trump’s first cousin’s wife was my English high school teacher, but we can leave that to one side. The right hon. Gentleman mentioned shame. As a Hebridean, I feel utter shame at how Donald Trump, the son of Hebridean woman, is behaving on the world stage. It is absolutely disgraceful and shameful. I hope he rescinds and changes the measure—not recasts, but rescinds it.
