LONDON (Reuters) - Queen Elizabeth will host new U.S. President Joe Biden and other world leaders at Buckingham Palace before a summit of the G7 big economies in June, the Sunday Times newspaper reported.

 

Describing it as a "soft power" reception, the Sunday Times said the Queen would be joined by the Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. The palace declined to comment on the report.

 

Britain has announced plans to hold the first in-person summit of the G7 for nearly two years in June in Cornwall, southwest England.

 

Prime Minister Boris Johnson hopes the meeting will forge a consensus that the global economy must recover from the COVID-19 pandemic in a pro-free trade and sustainable way.

maybe the queen will tell biden, "boris liked trump, but i prefer you!"

Or maybe she won't, perhaps she'll tell the truth. It is quite unbelievable that Trump with all his faults, a dislike of the UK was not one of them, yet President Biden has hardly shown a liking to the UK yet out goes the red carpet for him.

A great indication of how trump is despised.

At least Biden doesn't have to bring his own red carpet as did Trump on his last trip as POTUS to Florida.

I don't know hat Trump felt towards the people of the UK, but I'm certain the British recognize a dictator when they see one.

It's not just for Biden, it's for all the leaders, nothing special for him.

"but I'm certain the British recognize a dictator when they see one."

Well John Bercow certainly did, probably his wife Sally told him to say that in all fairness though.

 

You know I never realised that saying something positive would generate all this negativity. It reminds me of Newtons third law...For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.

I'm pretty sure she doesn't really care who the US president is, she has bigger fish to fry.

Of course she cares, it cost her a fortune to fumigate the place after trumps visit. 😜

Oh, she cares. 45 brought the US down several rungs of the world leaders' ladder, but it's still a force to be reckoned with.

 

At least President Biden is housebroken and won't embarrass the US for lack of understanding political protocol.

No doubt all the senior royals will turn out for this.  Prince Charles and Camilla have already confirmed they will be there after refusing to meet Trump last time.

I would rather he didn't come, but if our great Queen does have to accept this undesirable then I hope she tells him to sort out his own mess and stop interfering in the business of other countries, specifically regarding the Good Friday agreement.

 

If he insists on pretending to be Irish then he should at least be consistent in opposing a hard border which means vocally and unequivocally condemning the EU's recent triggering of article 16 to cover up their mishandling of vaccine procurement. 

 

He won't though, because he's Joe.

I get the feeling Boris came around to evenually realizing what Mr. Trump really was.

The relationship is with the country and it's people, not some opportunistic, hypocritical, virtue signaling politician who has only been in power for a couple of weeks and who lectures foreign powers about agreements he likely hasn't read.

I call B.S. 

President Biden became fully president of a nation that still has the biggest economy (not for much longer though) and most powerful military in the world the moment he was inaugurated.

Using the tired phrase virtue signaling is just a cheap lazy right wing trope.

All politicians indeed all people are hypocritical to one degree or another.

I see no evidence that President Biden is more hypocritical than average.

Not the point of my comment or the thread but that's just your opinion, I doubt that you represent the entire US.

You're claiming that you "represent most of the US"?  Really?   I don't think that you represent any of the US except yourself.

MOST people voted for President Biden. I am promoting the idea that most of the US felt embarrassed by 45. I will go further and say the majority of the WORLD felt embarrassed for the US because of 45. I would guess by your response you still feel the need to defend a twice impeached traitor.

Well there are none so blind as those who will not see.

 

If you consider him a good politician then that's fine, I guess after Bush, Obama and then Trump you guys have set a pretty low bar. He was elected on the basis of not being Donald Trump, you could have stood Kermit the Frog for the Democrats and he'd have won, probably by a larger margin.😆

 

But he should remain the US's problem, therefore I would prefer he stayed away from the politics of my country. Ideally I would prefer he stayed away from my country altogether, the sweet benevolent Grandpa act might work with US voters but it won't wash with the more savvy UK populace.

You obviously don't know much about American politics. Many political analysts including amateur me feel that Biden was the only candidate among the large democratic field that could have beat Mr. Trump. He had the right message for these times of historical division.

 

I am picking up that you are kind of a UK isolationist. That's your right but sorry no country is an island in the world. Even North Korea needs China.

You have any links supporting that? 

 

Or just wild speculation on your part?

With President Biden his innocent gaffes are a feature not a bug. Most people can relate to him better because of showing he is an imperfect human being like they are. The truth is that being super bright and the American Presidency aren't necessarily a good fit.
