Secret US memo for Congress seen by Mail On Sunday says Britain’s ‘special relationship’ with America is over

Washington believes that the ‘special relationship’ between Britain and the US is over, according to a secret briefing document seen by The Mail on Sunday.

The memo for members of Congress states damningly that ‘the UK may not be viewed as centrally relevant to the United States in all of the issues and relations considered a priority on the US agenda’.

Dated April 2015 and drawn up to brief the Senate and House of Representatives on the impact of Britain’s General Election, the memo also warns that the UK faces turmoil if there is a hung parliament.

    Oh come on, Cameron is certainly gay enough for a ‘special relationship’.

    Given the general state of the US Int organisations these days, the report is a bit of a yawner.

    Really? And who in their right mind wants to be friends with the Jackwad Obama? Seems he treats his friends worse than his supposed enemies.

    Meh. The UK is just another -stan anyway.
    Shame, though. Once they were quite admirable.

    Payback for Britain joining the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank. It’s the Chicago way.

    Red Ed must have received massive covert funding from Obama.

    Economically, Canada has had a greater “friendship” with the U.S. than GB since the end of the Second World War.

    If Canada had invested in its military and played a global role after 1945, it would have eclipsed GB on the world stage.
