Royal Wedding: The Runners and Riders

Among invitees to the Royal Wedding are Margaret Thatcher and John Major, but not Tony Blair and Gordon Brown.

In the queue for the complimentary hot dogs will be Crown Prince Salman bin Hamad al-Khalifa of Bahrain, whose regime has been accused of imprisoning doctors who were treating protesters.

I never know quite what to make of this sort of thing, save as confirmation of my long held view that the British Foreign Office should be closed down in the national interest.

STOP PRESS: The really good egg can't make it, busy as he is with oppressing the people the disturbances.
