We’re Special Again! Thanks Dave

May 12, 2010

Oh yeah, it’s a very special relationship:

Mark Blyth, a politics professor at Brown University, joked that “maybe it was a slow news day” before attributing the interest to the novelty of a hung parliament…Blyth identified three points of potential contention with Britain’s new government: Washington’s concern over the size of the UK debt; Britain backing away from spending on US defence projects; and Conservative antipathy towards the EU. The Obama administration backs the idea of a strong, unified Europe. “The US will want Britain in the tent pissing out rather than outside pissing in,” Blyth said.

    Who wants a special relationship with Mr Obama, who appears to have gone the way of all Presidents?
