SNUBBED BY THE ROYAL FAMILY--EX-LABOR PRIME MINISTERS
The traditional annual visit by the prime minister to Balmoral became something of an ordeal for Mr Blair and, in particular, his wife, Cherie, who refused to curtsy to Royal family members.
There was little sense of any particular warmth in royal circles towards Mr Brown, however for his part, Mr Brown, who constantly stressed the importance of British tradition and values, behaved "impeccably" in his dealings with Buckingham Palace.
Despite the complexities of relations, it seems extraordinary that the last two British prime ministers have not received invitations to this week's royal wedding.
The "snub" seems even more baffling because Mr Blair and Mr Brown were Labour prime ministers, while their two immediate Conservative predecessors, Sir John Major and Lady Thatcher, were invited.
The Queen, as head of state, is of course strictly neutral in terms of party politics, or so they say.
This blatant snub has unfortunately tarnished the Monarchy, does this Queen realise that with this one act she has put the Royals in a very bad light.
The Royal supremacy is not dead and it is obviously payback time for the Queen over the whole Diana incident.
A sad day for the Royals when they stoop to such an action as this.
I'M NOT HAPPY MR BLAIR
YOUR LABOR AND NOW YOUR A CATHOLIC, TUT,TUT!
AND THAT CHAP BROWN IS LABOR AND A COMPLETE BORE!
