Inviting the King of Bahrain to the Royal Wedding Sends the Wrong Signal

Downing Street is spinning that the PM has personally called on the King of Bahrain to end the violent suppression of street protests in the Gulf state. Bahrain is a regional ally and market for street protest suppressing British exports. It is possibly for that reason the King has been invited to William and Kate’s wedding.

Is that appropriate as tanks and helicopters are wielded by his security forces against pro-democracy protestors?
