There's an account in the Telegraph today of what the US administratiin really thought of Gordon Brown, courtesy of those nice people at Wikileaks.
The cables from the US embassy said that Gordon Brown "lurched from disaster to disaster". And still there are people who think the Yanks don't know what's going on in the rest of the world!
My favourite bit is where Nick Brown ‘assures’ the US Ambassador that any dissent will be slapped down. “Oh, Mr Brown, have another Ferrero Rocher, for it is you who are spoiling us with these delicacies!“
A lot of these so-called revelations from Wikileaks are not exactly state secrets but merely a result of the tendency by politicians to gossip. I suspect they may be a little more circumspect in future while attending the Ambassador's ball!
