GEORGE TYNDALE'S COLUMN: BUSH-WHACKED.

Byline: GEORGE TYNDALE

THE American President stomps into Britain this week with an army of heavies, minders, advisors and secret service agents.

Well over a third of the almost-700 personnel with George Bush on his three-day visit as a guest of the Queen will be armed.

Already our police have been browbeaten into closing off key parts of the capital to shield the entourage from demonstrators.

It has been distasteful enough to witness the White House bombing its way across a rundown country that presented no threat to the West and reducing it to terrorist-ridden chaos.

We now have to suffer George Bush being fawned over by our head of state while British citizens who want to exercise their right to protest in their own country are corralled, suppressed and threatened.

And for this we are going to have to cough up pounds 4 million.

That's armed robbery.
