Guardian: ‘Stand Up to U.S., Voters Tell Blair’

Guardian: 'Stand Up to U.S., Voters Tell Blair'

I share this article because it’s the first thing I saw this morning. Which was odd, because last night at a nearby pub, I was cornered by some very friendly British businessmen who quipped, “America is our best friend in the whole word. But, you know we also hate you.” From there, the conversation proceeded to touch on the war, Tony Blair, George W. Bush, and more… Anyway, the Guardian today echoes the same sentiments that I found at some random London nightspot:

Britain should take a much more robust and independent approach to the United States, according to a Guardian/ICM poll published today, which finds strong public opposition to Tony Blair’s close working relationship with President Bush.The wide-ranging survey of British attitudes to international affairs – the first since the conflict between Lebanon and Israel started- shows that a large majority of voters think Mr Blair has made the special relationship too special.
