Obama snubs McDoom….

Telegraph: Barack Obama rebuffs Gordon Brown as ‘special relationship’ sinks to new low.

“Gordon Brown has been snubbed repeatedly by Barack Obama during his trip to the United States, as the fall-out from the release of the Lockerbie bomber appeared to have left “the special relationship” at its lowest ebb for nearly 20 years.”

Yeah yeah…. but the Americans still want us to support the war in Afghanistan… maybe it is a question of empathy? Would you want to be stalked by McDoom?

  1. James – the reality is, I suspect, that there is no real snub at all here. the White House made that clear. We have more in common with the US and Canada than we ever had with Europe.

    Europe is of value to many British – holiday cottages in France and Tuscany come to mind – lagalouting in Magaluf and Ibiza. I suspect that if there was a referendum on Europe we would vote overwhelmingly to come out – which would not be one of the great ideas in economic terms… or would it?

  3. Time will tell, but my feeling is that Obama is snubbing the UK.
    A bit of friendly fire might be in order as the Labour policy of Brown nosing isn’t doing much.
