Personal injury at Selfidges & Co
While visiting the U.K. (American Citizen) I tripped over a Persian rug with a detached fringe. I subsequently fractured my wrist and possibly cracked my right knee cap. The only compensation for my injury and possibly lasting effects was two shopping bags and a wrist brace. Emergency care was great but the cost of the taxi cab ride was horrendous. I cannot find an attorney in the US to handle my legal pursuit. How can I get legal representation in this legal matter.

Disppointment in British leadership
I am so disappointed in British leadership in connection with the Baby Alfie issue. How can you call yourselves a "free" country when you will not permit this poor infant exit to Italy to perhaps obtain life-saving medical treatment. Britain is no longer a "FREE" country.

Please let the Royal Family know that I would consider Prince Harry snubbing our country if they exclude our president, but extend a wedding invitation to our ex-president, Obama, who showed disrespect to your country by removing Churchill's bust from the White House. If they do not wish to invite the Trumps then respect the Americans by not inviting Obama or any other former president. Donald Trump's mother came from Scotland, my heritage is British, Obama's is not. Personally, if I find that any member of the Royal family invites Obama to Prince Harry's wedding I will take it as a personal insult and will no longer buy British made things (Hotter shoes, Wedgewood, woolens, etc.) I will also encourage my friends to do likewise. The London mayor and other recent events, which includes some of Trumps remarks, have strained our wonderful relationship, don't do further damage by snubbing our president for a former president which many of us did not like.

Rescind invitation
As a patriotic American, former Navy pilot, and supporter of British/American friendship, may I suggest (strongly) that your Prime Minister rescind her invitation for the the President of the United States to visit your country and meet with the Queen. Further it would be entirely appropriate to ban this racist man-child from entering the United Kingdom now and forever.

Return (to White House, D.C.) Bust Of Sir Winston Churchill
I wrote a letter to your Embassy Staff during the early months Of Obama's Administration commenting on the disgust I and other Americans felt about the removal of the Bust from the White House and its return to the U.K. I am now wondering with the end of Obama's reign of disgust, will the Bust be returned the White House and a public announcement be made of its return? Thank you in hopes you will answer my question. Your country is loved by most Americans and we want the Bust returned.

Renewal of Passport
My daughters British passport has expired. we were expecting to just call the embassy to get renewal paperwork. No human contact available...and the bottom line is that we have to apply overseas for the renewal
process. Very inefficient and cold hearted. We are citizens and hit the wall.
