Since then however, another story has come along and blown it out of the water - it appears that under the START treaty, President Obama has agreed to disclose British nuclear secrets to the Russians. Again - shocking, but not surprising. Obama has never hidden his hatred of Britain, and so for him to throw us Brits under the bus for political expediency should surprise no-one.
In many years to come, when people write the history of the Anglo-American relationship, surely they will look at this and see the lowest moment. I cannot see how the UK-US relationship can sink any lower right about now. With the most anti-British President in the White House, and an anti-American nut job as Deputy Prime Minister in Britain, those of us who care about the relationship between Britain and America can only look to the future and hope that things will get better in a couple of years.
