The Labour government of Gordon Brown didn’t much care for the policies of the Saudi Royal family in 2008: suspected in sponsoring terrorism, killing gay people, mistreatment of women, you know the score. So, there must have been a real bitter discussion about having King Abdullah come to London to visit the Queen.
So, somebody within the Royal protocol system must have had a real brainwave and balls the size of Big Ben’s bells.
Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you The Royal Welsh Guards Marching Band at the visit of His Excellency King Abdullah: playing The Imperial March from The Emperor Strikes Back.
Just. Farking. Awesome.
