Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Former US President Barack Obama thought his country's "special relationship" with Britain was a joke and would slip Falklands references into press conferences to mock the UK, one of his ex-aides Jeremy Shapiro has claimed.

Shapiro said Donald Trump would not be any kinder to Britain, saying the new President is "playing" with Prime Minister Theresa May to get a better trade deal. He said Trump is "willing to exploit" the UK.

Odd, I would have thought he'd have understood that the special relationship was all about intelligence gathering for domestic purposes, even in the internet age.

But I fear that UK polticians think it's about a lot more, which is just sad.
