What a stupid mistake.

It's not about the Queen not being invited, it's like not showing the respect those brits earned on D-day. I was at the 60th anniversary celebration and it was inspiring, but this is a damned shame. If they don't go then neither will I.

They could cross the channel in boats to get there. The French sure are funny.

A few years back one of the aging American Veterans at the 50th Anniversary celebration got in to a brew-ha-ha with French Customs when they demanded to see his Passport and search his bags.

He refused and said "Passport, since when do you need a Passport to get into France?" The French Custom's Official said "Oh, it's always been that way".

The American Vet replied "That's funny the last time I came to France I landed on Omaha Beach and there wasn't a damn French Man to be seen anywhere to ask for my Passport that time!"

The French can be a bit daft. I once had a French Woman tell me that she felt no gratitude towards America for helping save their nation in World War I and World War II as we were only looking to make sure we got paid back for all the amunition we had sold them on credit!

I have to admitt the Germans are way less obnoxious!

Seems to me if any head of state was going to be invited Queen Elizabeth should have been at the top of the list.
