One of the best allies we ever had, and this is the respect we show:
Friends and allies of Baroness Thatcher expressed ‘surprise and disappointment’ last night as it emerged President Obama is not planning to send any serving member of his administration to her funeral.
Whitehall sources have revealed that the US delegation at tomorrow’s service in St Paul’s Cathedral will be led by two Reagan era secretaries of state: James Baker and George Shultz.
Much, much too busy trying to ram gun control and immigration reform down our throats. This isn't just an Obama effrontery, however -- nobody from the Bush or Clinton familes will attend, either. Margarert Thatcher was the last of the giants, and the lilliputian pissants can't be bothered. No big surprise.
