The US - Britain Special Relationship Is Dead

Winston Churchill, Franklin D Roosevelt and Josef Stalin

It’s Over: MPs Say The Special Relationship With US Is Dead -- Times Online

The report also warns that the perception of the UK after the Iraq war as America’s “subservient poodle” has been highly damaging to Britain’s reputation and interests around the world. The MPs conclude that British prime ministers have to learn to be less deferential to US presidents and be “willing to say no” to America.
