Description

During the Second World War, Winston Churchill mooted that at some stage Great Britain and the United States would have to become inextricably mixed up in their affairs. He was, of course, desperately courting that nation and its President, Franklin D. Roosevelt, in an attempt to persuade them to join in the conflict. The result of this courtship was to be the Grand Alliance, often referred to as a Special Relationship between the two nations. It was an expedient of desperation on Churchill's part which was to have long-term repercussions for the British. Churchill was from the old school that expected others to behave in the same tradition of fair play and straightforward dealing he himself espoused. But his trust in America and Roosevelt was to be badly misplaced. His was an excusable error. The priority of bringing the United States into a war they struggled to avoid was uppermost in his mind. But since then, British subservience to America has taken a sinister turn, which has led Britain to be almost as reviled in the Arab world as is the United States. This is the history of the relationship between the two nations - and a powerful plea that now is the time to obtain a divorce absolute from the country ruled by George W. Bush and for the British to reinstate their independence.
