How to chew the fat

Was Gordon Brown snubbed by President Obama? The UN security council is meeting in New York and five requests by the UK government for a private meeting between the two leaders were turned down. I read that it was President Obama himself who made these decisions. So not only has he personally turned Gordon down once, he has done it five times. It sounds like a snub to me.

The White House say there is no snub. Barack did see Gordon in the kitchen of the UN so it was not quite the private meeting that Gordon was hoping for but at least they were able to chew the fat. Maybe the answer is for Gordon to ask ten times and then Barack will realise that it would save him time to just see him. I have seen Bart and Lisa Simpson use the same technique when they want to go to Mount Splashmore. If it can work for them then it can work for anyone. However this gives a new twist to the phrase 'special relationship' which nnow resembles the relationship between a dog and its owner.

Change the world


  1. Your too kind.
    A dog is an intelligent, loving, responsive animal if treated correctly! I have never seen a dog that is devious, deceptive and dishonest.

  2. It is interesting to note that the headline on the BBC website (27th Sept) is a quote from Gordon Brown. "I do not roll over". Well I only mentioned sitting up and begging.
