Obama Vs Cameron: one-all draw? Who’s kidding who?
It was billed as the heavyweight match of the decade, the phonecall in which up-and-coming Davey Blue-boy Cameron would take on the undisputed champion of the world, Barack El Presidente Obama, and force him to stop dissing Britain.
What a damp squib! This was less a grudge match than a mutual love-in.
The President affirmed his deep commitment to the special and historic relationship between our two countries. The President thanked the Prime Minister for his commitment to lead on the broad range of issues on our shared agenda…
Finally, the President and the Prime Minister agreed to disagree on the desired outcome of the June 12 U.S.-England World Cup soccer match; the President noted that the historical record of previous World Cup matches between the United States and England favors the United States and the President wagered the best lager against the best beer in America on an American win over England.
Well that explains it. Robert Green is not a bad goalie – he was just under political instruction from No 10 to keep the special relationship alive. It won’t work though. Have a closer look at the photo above. Do I see a two-fingered salute from El Presidente to Blue-boy?
