Exclusive By Terry O'Hanlon
THE Queen is furious with President George W. Bush after his state visit caused thousands of pounds of damage to her gardens at Buckingham Palace.

Royal officials are now in touch with the Queen's insurers and Prime Minister Tony Blair to find out who will pick up the massive repair bill. Palace staff said they had never seen the Queen so angry ...

And Bush's army of clod-hopping security service men trampled more precious and exotic plants ... [then there's the flamingos (yes, flamingos)]
... "The lawns are used for royal garden parties ... But 30,000 visitors did not do as much damage as the Americans did in three days ...
[Below (Nov 24, 2003) is another extract about the UK visit by Bush II]
