    At least Cheney and Kissinger attended. Just another detail in the abandonment of the UK by the US. If we give up on the UK, we will give up on California: same political/economic conditions with no tan lines.

    It would have more insulting if BO *did* send somebody – it would have been either Biden or Moochelle. At least Thatcher was spared that.
