    Would they lock down the White House for something so trivial?

    I'm surprised they allow anything so iconic to happen there. If a member of the protection detail misinterpreted the Easter Bunny's movements as "going for his gun", for example, the resulting front-page images would put the world's children off their Special K for days. Why take the risk, that's the question. At least if it were Santa he's dressed in red.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.
    From the upper tier of the Leppings Lane End of the Hillsborough Stadium, I watched the events of that day unfold with horror.
    When the flowers want to oxygen and nutrition, or you’re a wedding or party planner, I will help you too much.

    There is all kinds of security around the White House. Somebody should tell Barry it is a good idea to lock the front door.

    White House fence jumper made it through front door

    You think he has a key?

    I bet So-Called David Cameron doesn't have a key to 10 Downing Street.

    I can't speak for the White House but I can't lock or open my own front door without a key. From the inside, from the outside, the front door and both the back doors, they all have mortice locks and no latch. I usually have to lift a security bar to let people in, too, not that it happens often.

    Cameron doesn't have a key to 10 Downing Street - No-one does. It doesn't have a lock.
