America snubs Britain and cosies up to France: Obama says choosing a best ally would be like picking a 'favourite' daughter
•Obama and Hollande took turns saying they couldn't declare a 'varotie' ally
•US President refuses to say Britain was his favourite ally
•Claimed all European countries were both 'wonderful in their own ways'
•Comes after Jon Kerry refused to mention the UK during speech on Syria
•Secretary of State claimed France were the 'oldest ally' and did not mention the UK

Britain's economy is doing well and probably the most successful in Europe at the moment. Hollande's Socialist government is in deep shit and going down fast. Proof that Obama cares about Socialism more than he does about the US economy!

Oh well...so much for the 'special relationship'. Looks like we've been put in the friendzone. I don't suppose we'll be getting a valentine's card from America this year then.

No I would say it means Obama cares more about his own nations economy, while it will be on his time of two terms.

It is hard to get more to spend when you have a free fall in your economy like the 2007 recession.

It would be an attmept to strengthen trade and economic partners in public view.

An attempt to boost credibility of one not doing so well.
And an attempt to hammer out a sense of agreeing with the EU and its standing.

I do not think all member want to really stay in the EU cogs or chains.
I think they are beginning to be fed up with it.

And if they drop out it will crash a lot of others.

That is good reason to paint a picture rosy.

There's more to it than you know. Obama's just made a massive trade deal without including Congress. But that needs it's own thread, which I'll do in a while...

I think this is way more than trade deals.

Fair point. Guess it's easy to see why they get on well!
