‘Special relationship’; UK and US agree to see other countries
Following months of speculation the UK and the US have confirmed to Heat magazine that they have agreed to see other countries.
Speculation has been rife that the two country’s ‘special relationship’ has been on the rocks since last year when the US refused to speak to the UK at the G20 summit and was pictured in talks with a number of other countries.
The US told Heat that it had had enough of waiting for the UK to fully commit. ‘Sure, we’ve had our good times, like those trips to Iraq and Afghanistan, but all that time it spends with those EU and Commonwealth countries – we just don’t think they’re ready to settle down.’
The UK was keen to stress that it was a mutual decision that it is entirely happy with and ‘wasn’t just America’s idea at all’.Click to send this story to a friend
