COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN THE INDEPENDENT

 

I hope I don’t hurt anyone’s feelings, but it is a fact that Americans, the great bulk of them, care nothing about anything that happens in Britain.

Remember Bush bragging during his 2000 campaign that he never read the international section of the newspaper?

That’s why the “special relationship” imagined by British politicians is such a fantasy idea.

Oh, yes America’s government, when up to some new no-good project, likes to drag Britain along to make things look more international, but that is as far as it goes.

Britain is also good to squeeze military subsidies out of, as for the Tridents you can ride around in but never use or the still-not-working-and-needing-patching F-35s.
