Royals are all in it together

Issue No. 2240

Most ordinary people, after watching the bloody scenes on their TV screens this week, would want as much distance between themselves and the king of Bahrain as possible.

Not Britain’s royal family though.

In the week that the king of Bahrain opened fire on protesters, killing five and injuring dozens, Prince William and Kate Middleton invited him to their wedding in April.

The royals clearly like to mix with their own—even if they are murdering dictators.

Hopefully thousands of “uninvited” guests will show up to show their “appreciation” for the king’s visit.
