The Queen gives the cold shoulder to President Obama for breaking protocol offering a toast to the Queen when they were playing HER SONG: God Save the Queen of course.
The band started early but the Queen should not have ignored a sincere offer of a toast by the US president. An insult to all Americans.
The reality is that with people who have nothing to do all day protocol and etiquette becomes the only activity they care about. So when somebody doesn't follow the 'rule' (their rule) they gold cold not knowing what to do.
Americans should steer clear from Monarchy. It is stupid to pander to it for votes in America. America should feel proud of their history. After all, wasn't the French-speaking French that took American's side during Independence?
A great Queen would've acted swiftly and toasted. A sad moment for democracy. As usual.
The BBC at first did not make any mention of the gaffe by Buckingham Palace in their main news programme. ITV did menion it but did not show the president's face after the snub.
