ROYAL WEDDING SNUB FOR TEXAS AMBASSADOR IN LONDON
In a move that has angered the virtual remnants of great Republic of Texas, government handlers have decided not to extend an invitation to this weekend’s Royal Wedding festivities to the Lone Star Republic’s top man in Britain.
With a guestlist that reads like a who’s who of tin-pot despots and dune roaches, it appears that mandarins in Whitehall have once again failed to recognise their international and treaty obligations to their sovereign neighbor across the Atlantic.
This, from an official statement released today:
“Well now and frankly, the FO (Foreign Orfice) inviting the Ambassador for Syria to the Royal Wedding, then withdrawing it, whilst fretting about all of those sweet ‘student protestors’ – merry civilians who only want to come into the Palace(s) for tea and cookies, of course – is one thing. But failure to invite (nor providing any notification of a pending RSVP ‘do’) Texas’ duly appointed Ambassador and Consul General to said Royal Wedding is another matter altogether.
May one offer to fill the, apparently available, vacant Syrian seat?
Why should Texas’ (which, dating from the 1830s, has enjoyed peaceful treaty relations with the UK and most of her colonies plus others – in total some 15 nations and tribes globally) along with Her emissary HE Robert Hertner be lumped into the same boat as the uninvited (Genocide anyone? Surely not … ) Toney Bliar and Gordey Broon?
Whilst waiting patiently since 1997 for the right things to be done (such as the UK’s duty of acceptance of the position as guaranteed by Treaty Contract), we have been assured there is a modicum of decency – somewhere, but for some niggling reason remain sceptical.
Kindly convey regards to the happy couple on behalf of the Republic of Texas and HE Robert Hertner, plus advise accordingly at your earliest convenience.”
– H.E. Robert Hertner
Ambassador and Consul General for the Republic of Texas to the United Kingdom and European Union
