When Barack Obama came to power, he made a point of distancing himself from the ‘special relationship’ between Britain and America.
He hammered home the point by traipsing around Europe making best buddies of Sarkozy, Merkel and Berlusconi.
Unfortunately for him, millions of his compatriots did not share his indifference to all things British, and became unsettled by his lofty attitude.
Now, all of a sudden, David Cameron is being treated like a long-lost brother and was guest of honour at the biggest state banquet of Obama’s White House tenure.
The guest-list even included British actors and sports stars to make him feel at home. Anyone would think there’s an election coming up.
