    This is a first

    The British Ambassador to the US sent a letter to PM Gordon Brown about Obama.

    In the letter it said

    "He can talk to dispassionately...about issues which touch people personally, e.g his notorious san Francisco comments about small-town Pensylvania 'clinging' to guns and religion."


    he went on to say

    "We will need to consider with him the articulation between (a) his desire for 'unconditional' dialogue with Iran and (b) our and the United Nations Security council's requirement of prior suspension of enrichment before the nuclear negotiations proper can begin."


    When the British Embassy was notified of the letter leak, they said

    "We are totally neutral as far as the American elections are concerned."

    This is probably true but its nice to know not every other country drank the freakin kool aid

    I like this guy :)

    You should read a book called DC Confidential by Christopher Meyer that will give you an idea of what the ex-British Ambassador's thoughts on your current President were!

    Tony Blair was the consumate politician.....he had people eating out of his hand!

    Personally I would have no problem seeing him handed over Afghan tribesmen
