The First Casualty of War

For months the British contingent in the European Commission, the Council of Ministers and the European Parliament have been polishing their boots, checking for halitosis and ironing their glad rags. On Wednesday Brussels was to play host to H.M. the Queen - fanfare, tabards and bugles.

However the powers that be at Buck House and N° 10, have decided "for security reasons" to cancel the trip.

I guess that they did not want the Head of State to be visiting a hostile nation at a time of war.
