The word on the street is that if we are indeed officially in an election campaign in the next few days, the Prime Minister will be declining his invitation to the royal wedding of William and Kate. Some had thought it would be a nice photo-op in the middle of a campaign, but somehow I suspect that the PM would be attacked by the left if he took a break from campaigning to attend the wedding. It would certainly be used against him, so cancelling the trip in an election is probably the most pragmatic move.
That's too bad. I thought it was cool that Harper got an invitation but Obama did not.
