This is a couple of years old but still so awesome. Apparently, some members of the Welsh Guard band, who customarily perform whenever an important dignitary makes an official visit to Great Brittan, were unwilling to perform for Saudi King Abdulah, due to Saudi Arabia's human rights violations and it's stance on women. And by "stance on women," I mean, Saudi men like to stand on their women. And violate them; their rights, that is.
This, was their compromise. That this actually happened is so awesome.
