Obama State Visit to Britain 24th May 2011
Barack and Michelle Obama are to visit the UK on May 24th 2011. This is the first state visit the President of the United States will make and pundits in the UK believe that this will illustrate that the special relationship between the USA and the UK is alive and well.

There are many people in the UK who will wish to welcome President Barack Obama on 24th May 2011. This was not the case for the previous President George W Bush. The same people would have wanted to protest against him and his poodle (the ex British Prime Minister Tony Bliar Blair). Bush and his poodle brought war and their legacy is the continuing death and tragedies taking place in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Barack Obama is a beacon of hope for decent people throughout the world. He will not find the same in the current British Prime Minister David Cameron but we hope that Obama will meet Ed Miliband while in the UK. The two have much in common and if and when they are both leaders in their respective countries they should do good for the entire world. Here’s hoping!
