No to Bahrain at the wedding

Disgusted to see that the Bahrain crown prince has been invited to the Royal Wedding. I wasn't at all interested in the wedding of someone who will one day become the unelected head of state to a woman whose family were portrayed as the ultimate social climbers until the Bahrain story broke.

This is from Al Jazeera:

The crown prince of Bahrain is on the guest list for the wedding of the UK's Prince William and Catherine Middleton in London next week, as criticism of the violent suppression of opposition protesters continues.
Salman bin Hamad bin Isa al-Khalifa, the Crown Prince of Bahrain, was one of more than 40 foreign royals invited to attend the British royals' wedding in Westminster Abbey on Friday.

Looks like he's not coming, though its the thought that counts.

Excellent news! He obviously saw my blog post and decided it wasn't worth it :-)
