England should cancel his visa,,,,,and put him on the 'persona non grata' list.....

He does not deserve to be treated like a leader,,,,,,,,he is an authoritarian dictator or the worst kind.

England......do not allow him to come......

He is no better than the likes of stalin, hitler, ghadaffi, and all dictators.....
