Bush State Visit to Great Britain

President Bush's visit to Great Britain has fired up tens of thousands of demonstrators in London. Among those most opposed are British citizens of African and Caribbean heritage, according to a readers' poll by The Voice, Britain's premier black newspaper. NPR's Tavis Smiley gets an update from Vic Motune, deputy editor for The Voice, and also from two British academicians — Preston King, professor of political philosophy and Scholar in Residence at Morehouse College and Emory University, and Nile Gardiner, visiting fellow for Anglo-American affairs at the Heritage Foundation in Washington.
