Ben Judah in the New York Times

Spiteful anti-British article by someone called Ben Judah in the New York Times:  http://mobile.nytimes.com/2014/03/08/opinion/londons-laundry-business.html?from=opinion

It would be instantly forgettable nonsense were it not for the fourth paragraph which begins:  "It boils down to this: Britain is ready to betray the United States to protect the City of London’s hold on dirty Russian money."

What on earth does Ben Judah think we are "betraying"?

We owe no loyalty to the United States.

Mr Judah, do you not remember when President Obama was first elected one of the first things he did was send back the bust of Winston Churchill that was on display in the White House Oval Office?

It wasn't just consigned to a side table in a back corridor.  It wasn't even put away in a cupboard.  It was sent back.

We got the message.

You don't want to be our friends.

You have all those new buddies in the Far East who are your best friends now.

So fuck you Ben Judah (if I may be allowed to use an American expression).

You go to your new friends and ask them for support.

We are looking after our own interests, not yours.
