One thing that I have always found a total minter (embarrassing) is the so called special relationship between the United Kingdom and the United States of America. British MPs shout it from the roof tops at every opportunity, but the simple reality is it is all bullshit and a British construct that just does not exist other than in the warped minds of those who still think the UK is a power, we are not even a minor player on the world stage, we just believe our own bullshit.
President Barak Obama this week noted that his most important ally was Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor, during his presidency, it even took President Elect Donald Trump a wee while to make a call to Prime Minster Theresa May, she was 10th on the list behind Egypt Ireland Mexico Israel Turkey India Japan & Australia amongst others. Even Nigel Farage got a meeting and Donalds first official meeting will be with the Japan Prime Minister, special relationship I don’t think so.
Having spent a little time in America I can honestly say that I never ever heard an American or an American politician mention the so called special relationship. We are also told that Americans love the Royals and envy us the Windsor gravy train, the simple fact is that most Americans could not care less and see the Windsors as a curiosity that they might also find at Disney World in Florida.
The United Kingdom just does not register for most Americans, it’s as simple as that, we are at best an annoyance and a reminder of what they were able to escape from and reject. If America has a special relationship with anyone it is Israel, it is Saudi Arabia and it is Germany and China, what it isn’t is the United Kingdom. We are very much the poodle.
So when the yoon politicians and the yoon media talk about a special relationship with the United States of America, of special trade deals, they are talking shit. We are and always will be America’s poodle as long as the Tories and the red and yellow Tories remain in power in this country.
