Do us a favour George, stay home next week.

London is now too dangerous, thanks to your foreign policy
We don't want the disruption, streets closed, tube stations blocked etc
Nor the thousands of demonstrators wailing and shouting
Nor the hundreds of armed secret policemen poised to kill anyone who looks un American.

And why should I have to contribute to your security when its your actions that have got the rest of the world so mad?

Seriously George, if you want some pretty pics of you sipping tea with Her Majesty, invite Her to Crawford it would be easier all round. [btw did you know that Her Maj. is into horses and a big John Wayne fan? you would have lots to talk about]

From the BBC website, a reader's comment:
Quote:

As an American who lived in England for 2 years, I can advise President Bush not to waste his time coming to the UK. The Brits are whinging, ungrateful, hypercritical, and usually drunk. While Tony Blair is a man of great courage and honour, his unpopularity at home only underscores the fact that the modern Brits have no understanding of those qualities. We in the US thank Mr Blair and the members of the UK military forces for standing with us in Iraq. However, if President Bush wants to see a crumbling, dysfunctional country he can stay closer to home and visit Mexico.

I am deeply troubled about the BBC reader's suggestions.
Mexico is dysfunctional OK. But Mexicans are way more deceptive and hypocritical than Brits, those champions of fair play. They'll say "señor" in front of you, and "pinche gringo" at your back. Since Mexico has never ever been a superpower, their people just don't understand what it means to sacrifice for the sake of the rest of the world. And besides, there is the language divide. Britons may speak differently, but it's still English.
So my advise to President Bush is that he visit a friendly neighbor, Canada.

We don't want him here either and detest Bush as much as the rest of the world.

Yes I do remember that Piffka.

And just to reiterate that no matter how mad I get with Bush and his crew, I know in reality there are many many good Americans with whom its good to share the same planet, and sometimes a dinner table. Very Happy

Hope things ok for you all over there. Tell Mr P I will make sure Bush gets a suitable message, if the gun toting security guys let me and my placard get nearer than 2 miles away! Thank God we live in a democracy.

Gautam, the position of Poet Laureate will soon be vacant, suggest you apply. Laughing

... don't understand what it means to sacrifice for the sake of the rest of the world...

Boy are you confused! The vast majority of the world would link these terms to the US thanks to the current administration.

Meanwhile at one end of the Mall next week, we get down to business.

Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth the Second. "Welcome to Buckingham Palace Mr President, and how was your trip?
W No problems your Royal Majesty, the traffic was a breeze.
Q That's possibly because I've had most of central London cordoned orf, and the plebs banished for the day.
W Well thanks a bundle Ma'am, I really appreciate that.
Q Now, what is it you have come here to see me about?
W You know this is a little difficult, but I have a bit of a problem with my poll,…you know in the South.
Q I see, it must be quite troubling.
W It sure is. The thing is, I wondered if you and I could do something together to give me a little boost. I've seen you on tv many times, I know what great oralists you British are. It would sure give me a lift, 'cause I'm going south in more ways than one at the moment if you understand me, your Ma'amness.
Q Well its been a while but I don't see why not. Tell me, why do they call you Dubya?
W It’s just a family name thing… bit like yours I suppose, all those Georges!
Q Indeed! In a way I'm glad you asked me to do this…I shall be able to dub you Dubya. A double Dubya, what fun!
W Well I'm honoured Ma'am
Q And afterwards I can say, arise Sir Dubya, but in your case I see you are already risen!
W Its my first time in the presence of a real queen ma'am, a Texas boy can't help gettin' mighty excited.
Q Oh don't worry about that, it happens all the time with royalty. Now it will be necessary for one to go down on one's knees. So if you would like to lean against the writing desk…
W Er…?
Q But I don't think cameras will be necessary at this point.
W But I was hoping for a little campaign material
Q Well if you insist. Now crown on or orf?
W Beg pardon Ma'am?
Q Its just that Philip always used to say it hurt his ribs.

After the ceremony

Q Well thank you for coming Mr President, or now I should say Sir Dubya!
W No no the pleasure was all mine, really it was! You know I read all that stuff in the papers about British Royalty and I never believed any of it! Jeez!…I had no idea about those royal ceremonies…
W (safely back in car) You're NOT gonna believe this!!!!!
Senior aid. Its ok sir, Tony Blair has already promised to have the tapes destroyed.
