The real views of many in Obama administration were laid bare by a State Department official involved in planning the Brown visit, who reacted with fury when questioned by The Sunday Telegraph about why the event was so low-key.
The official dismissed any notion of the special relationship, saying: "There's nothing special about Britain. You're just the same as the other 190 countries in the world. You shouldn't expect special treatment."
Fine, nor should you, fuckface. Now get knotted, you bunch of protectionist, interfering, imperialist tosspots.
UPDATE: commenter Budgie says this...
Whilst I generally agree with Anon 7:56pm, there is one point neither he nor DK acknowledge.
Which is that we, in Britain, have a strange habit of thinking that other countries will look after us.
The USA is a foreign country - we have no right to expect them to accommodate our views. Unless, of course, we actually start defending our own interests. Meaning we should only give up something when we get something in return.
The most glaring example of this mindset is our attitude to the EU. We have given up money, influence, national democracy and power - for no specific return whatsoever. And the europhiles think that France, Germany et al will be nice to us, when, of course, they simply look after their own interests, not ours.
Your humble Devil has, of course, made the point ad nauseam—in relation to the US and the EU—that our politicians lack testicles and are, essentially, spineless cowards who are more interested in getting their faces firmly in the trough than standing up for the interests of the people of this country.
There is a reason for that, you see: each and every one of them has nothing but total contempt for you and I; they couldn't give a fuck about what is best for us, but only what is best for their own fat bellies and fatter wallets.
Telling the US to go fuck itself would, of course, be indicative of the fact that someone who claims to speak for us had, in fact, grown a pair of balls and might, therefore, be someone worth voting for.
I have long said that it is the politicians who have contributed hugely to the malaise rampant throughout the people of this country; it is not the ordinary citizens—other than irritating students, university lecturers still yearning for Communism, and those who read The Guardian (sets which overlap and which are entirely enclosed by the set labelled "too naive, ignorant and stupid to live")—who moan about how we can't expect to order world affairs because we don't have the Empire anymore.
Fuck the Empire: it's of no consequence. Let us simply announce that we will buy anything and sell anything and with no restrictions; let us announce free trade and become the trading hub of the world. What need have we then of these protectionist, fading non-entities such as the US and the EU?
I would do precisely that, were I in such a position: I would bring pride back to the people of these isles and I would make Britain great again. But I have better things to do, at present, than to wallow in the slime as a politician.
