I think the best protest would be to line the streets and turn their backs in silence.

Protests are exactly what Trump wants. I agree that people have an absolute right to protest against his visit, but by doing so they're playing the game by the rules he has set.

Much better to shun him. Let the streets be empty as his cavalcade passes. Let the silence ring out in the streets of London.

It'll never happen, but can you imagine his rage at being ignored?
I don't see why it should prompt people lining the streets in whatever capacity, either to cheer or jeer.

Usually when visiting members of state come to the UK, they just get whisked around from place to place without much in the way of people lining the streets anyway.

The action happens at the venue - press call, local school waves flags, few minutes at a podium, bail out to the next factory/museum/dinner.

If he's expecting his ride in a carriage along streets lined with people I think he's going to be disappointed. It's a Friday in London. People are at work, leave early, go for a beer. Or you're weird.

I'm sure she's utterly thrilled at the prospect.
She's probably too busy training the corgis to bite.

You go left wing virtue signalers!!!!!!

Virtue signalling is the conspicuous expression of moral values.[1] The term was first used in signalling theory, to describe any behavior that could be used to signal virtue.
Stop getting referencing wrong.
