  Bush getting ready for UK visit
Updated 14 November 2003, 10.15
George Bush is visiting the UK next week
US president George Bush is coming to the UK next week, despite lots of people planning to protest during his visit about what's going on in Iraq.

Mr Bush is coming over for an important state visit, which includes meeting the Queen and staying at Buckingham Palace.

People who don't think military action in Iraq is right are hoping to protest near places where Mr Bush will be.

During his trip Mr Bush says he will visit some of the families of the UK soldiers killed during the fighting.

But some relatives have said they don't want to meet the president because they don't think he really cares.

Mr Bush said in interviews that the soldiers didn't die for nothing, and they have helped make the world a safer place.

He also said that he speaks to Tony Blair every week and described the prime minister as a "strong leader".
