Is Britain's 'Special Relationship' with the US History?

Hosted by

Since Winston Churchill persuaded Franklin Roosevelt to support Britain in World War II, the US and Britain have maintained "the Special Relationship." Now a committee of Parliament has recommended that it come to an end. Sir David Manning, who was Tony Blair's Ambassador to Washington during the Presidency of George W. Bush, recently told the committee that Barack Obama is "a Democrat who is not familiar with us," and recommended Britain use "sharp elbows" if it wants to be heard. Mary Dejevsky is chief editorial writer for The Independent of London.
