Have you read this post from the new Justin Webb, Mark Mardell? He ponders on the “special relationship” between the UK and the US in the light of Obama snubbing McDoom at the UN meeting. (No mention of the Megrahi issue, of course) I think Mark provides an interesting insight into BBC elite thinking, Naturally there is denial that any such “special relationship” exists. It only did exist because of all those WASPS, apparently, but now we are the aged and puny relative unworthy of any special attention from the White House occupied by the first black President. (“Born in Hawaii” Mark confidently asserts. Has he seen evidence of this, I wonder?) Liberal self-loathing and depreciation of Britain is an essential asset for those such as Wardell. In fairness, Nick Robinson has a better take here.
