Hopefully their routes have been recced to avoid speed bumps, potholes and ramps.

Nice watching him and Phil inspecting the Scots Guards with their Bayonets fixed.

Is Obama still insisting on calling the Falkland Islands the Malvinas?

What a woose, sneaking in to Buck House. Why not arrive on Horseguards like every other Head of State and process in carriages to Buck HOuse. I have been walking up and down St James' Park all day. Finally got a glimpse as he whizzed back into Buck House, with his 14 other vehicles including two loads of cops in tin hats with guns, I had to chuckle. HMQ left Buck House on Monday night to go to Chelsea Flower show with 4 outriders and one cop car. Thank God we have a Queen and not a President

I stand corrected, I know previously they did, clearly they trust 19

I'll sit in the corner and think about what I did there (can you link the article image came from please)

EDIT: according to a couple of media sources USSS do have armed personnel deployed, be that in the form of the ambassdors normal PSD or the agents assigned to POTUS I don't know but when Bush was over they brought there own CAT

Talking of CO19 tooled up for this visit, did anyone spot the 'Heavy Armoured' Assault vehicle that looked like something out of 'Judge Dredge' with a vehicle ramming type slow plough on the front (wish i'd got a picture of it now) similar to this

I was'nt aware if it was the Met's or not however it was patrolling the area
