MPs in Britain spent three hours debating whether Donald Trump should be banned from the UK for his anti-Muslim remarks - even though the prospects of the US Presidential hopeful being barred are slim to none.

However, prompted by a 500,000-strong petition calling for a Trump import embargo, MPs got stuck in to the business tycoon - whose interests include golf course in Scotland.
