New UK PM Praises, Thanks Bush
The Sun Online carries the story of new British Prime Minister Gordon Brown’s rather effusive praise of George W. Bush’s leadership.
In his speech, Brown referred to Winston Churchill:
The Prime Minister vowed to take Winston Churchill’s lead and make Britain’s ties with America even stronger.
Mr Brown stunned critics by THANKING President Bush for the fight against Islamic extremism, and insisted the UK-US relationship will be his No1 foreign policy priority.
He said on his first visit to the President’s US retreat at Camp David: “Winston Churchill spoke of the ‘joint inheritance’ of our two countries.”
Many expected Brown to chill US-UK relations on the heels of Tony Blair’s tight relationship with the White House. If chill is to come, it will come another day, I suppose.
