    Obama has little to do with it. This is simply a self evident truth. The guardian article makes plain that even in earlier times the UK Foreign Office saw the term 'special relationship' as overused and misleading. We saw this in the UK quite clearly most recently whilst Blair became known as Bush's poodle during the Iraq controversies. Cipora should read the article rather than just refer to it, since it does not support what she implies. Namely that the so called 'special relationship' has ended because of Obama! "Over the longer term the UK is unlikely to be able to influence the US to the extent it has in the past." M.P. /Gapes (inevitable trend, not Obama policy change) "We might have to respond to it in public if it is thrown at us by Americans, but we don't regard it as special," Sir J. Greenstock former ambass. to UN. As for Churchills bust.LOL! It is an inappropriate motif in the modern age. There are those who like to equate the war on terror with a world war as in WW2, but that is populist nonsense, hence Churchill is for another era, the old warhorse imperialist is not a man for all seasons and certainly not this one, though it is easy to see that he would have appealed to Cheney and Bush. http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2010/mar/28/us-uk-special-relationship-over
