Think back to the end of August, as the rush to bomb Syria further back into the stone age was reaching its height.
As the UK was held back from participating in a US-led – and William Hague cheer-led – attack on the Al-Assad regime thanks to a Parliamentary cock up, the Americans decided to fawn over the only nation, with insufficient democratic checks and balances but sufficient stupidity and political blood lust, to stand shoulder to shoulder with Washington. I refer of course to France.
While that had Hague and Cameron skulking around Downing Street in a jealousy fuelled fury, the French quite enjoyed their renewed love-in with the Yanks, as this part of a puff piece on France24 made clear…
But of course, there are few beasts as fickle as the politician. And that is brought into stark relief today as howls of protest emanate from the fragrant corridors of power of America’s oldest ally. Guess where they are directed…
Thus it seems the American love-in-of-convenience with the French has already hit the buffers. Bless. But then, who would ever have believed the self centred septics and the self serving snail munchers would remain faithful?
That being the case, it couldn’t happen to two more unpleasant and repugnant administrations. But no doubt Cast Iron Dave and Concrete Willy are today filled with fresh hope that their unrequited love for Obama and the Beltway Boys will again result in America going through the motions of being the UK’s true love and best friend forever.
Until, that is, the next time Britain doesn’t satisfy America and Washington goes roaming for a new partner to romp with.
