The special relationship

So David Cameron is now in The USA shoring up the special relationship. The speeches yesterday on the Whitehouse lawn were somewhat over-the-top with respect to how fabulous the Camerons and the Obamas are. The description of beacons of liberty, freedom, justice, etc. from both sides seemed to have a certain other worldliness quality. Where does constant regime change, interference in other countries’ affairs, Guantanamo Bay, assassination squads, privatisation, bank bailouts….fit into all of this.

Nice clothes.
