Welcome to ToyTown, the ToyTown from Hell
To American eyes Britain has never seemed more like toytown - Times Online
There is real doubt in President Obama’s team – as there was in George W. Bush’s Administration – that Britain has any significant help left to give.
Good luck, Gordon Brown, in trying to portray yourself as the economic wise man who can offer avuncular advice to the novice. It won’t make up for Britain’s reluctance to offer many more troops in Afghanistan – and the US suspicion that even if Brown wanted to, he couldn’t.
To Washington eyes never has Britain seemed more like toytown than in the heady first 48 hours of the Obama White House. But even if the attention that Obama’s military advisers pay to British affairs is slight, it takes only a second to register the hard numbers.
They can see at a glance the cuts in military spending, the shrinking of the Army and the national debt. It doesn’t take much to work out that this means cutbacks, and mysterious delays in expensive new kit.
With regard to our decline a kindly Septic is coming over to tell us about it - here's a chance to hear him.
Yo, Brits - Maggie's FarmHeads up, cousins. Jonah is coming! (The author of Liberal Fascism - if they still permit you to read such radical and subversive books.)
Of course, the Brits are already experts on liberal fascism. They live it.
