D-Day Commemorations/President Bush

Asked if the Prime Minister would take the opportunity to use this weekend’s D-Day commemorations to hold a meeting with President Bush, the Prime Minister’s Official Spokesman (PMOS) said that the commemorations would be largely ceremonial. Consequently, while people would, theoretically, be able to meet up and talk in the margins, the opportunity to do so would be fairly limited.

  1. Well, that’s a resounding ‘maybe’ if I’ve ever seen one.

  2. Strikes me that if ever there were a day to not discuss a failed and misbegotten war, it’s D-Day. No sense in tarnishing the memory of soldiers who died to protect our freedom with the wasted lives of the dead in our current one.
