And I’m inclined to agree with him. Many of you may recall my rant last week about the grave mistreatment of Gordon Brown at the hands of the Obama administration (read it here). Well, now Car God Jeremy Clarkson has chimed in with his two pence.
Not only does he view it as an insult, he think it’s time to cut off America and it’s ingratitude and end the ‘special relationship‘ that America and Britain supposedly have.
From the article:
However, if you look at Gordon Brown’s recent trip to Washington, Johnny Frenchman would appear to have a point. Gordon gave Obama Barrack a penholder carved from the timbers of an antislavery ship. The sister ship, in fact, of the one that was broken up and turned into the desk in the Oval Office.
Barrack, meanwhile, gave Brown The Graduate on DVD. Which smacks of an â€œOh, Christ. What shall we get him?â€ moment at the local petrol station.
Then we have the issue with crime. The British authorities have to present a robust prima-facie case to the American courts before we can extradite someone to the UK. Whereas an American cop can drag you across the Atlantic if he even so much as thinks your beard is a bit dodgy.
