This is hilarious. First we have Laura Bush sitting next to a shrouded woman against a pink background in a gob smacking image on several levels. Next we have a video clip (hat tip JW) from Weazel Zippers of a piece from Channel 4 news showing King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia being received by the Queen at Horseguards Parade on Tuesday, to the sound of the Guards Band playing the Darth Vader theme from Star Wars. Mary Jackson over at New English Review comments
The British mess a lot of things up, but one thing we get right is royal protocol. The Darth Vader march is deliberate, make no mistake about it.
Just into the video, look carefully at the Queen’s face, a face that has kept straight before many a cavorting semi-naked Maori. She’s having a bit of a giggle. In fact, if I may lapse into the vernacular for a moment, she is pissing herself.
The piece goes on to show Jon Snow and Dean Godson of the Policy Exchange questioning Inayat Bunglawala the Assistant secretary-general of the Muslim Council of Britain about the dubious Saudi-funded literature on sale in the country’s Mosques.
