U.S. Embassy London: “The UK-U.S. Alliance: Still Special or Just Another Partnership?”

leave a comment »

Minister-Counselor for Public Affairs, Sandra Kaiser, gave these remarks regarding the special relationship at RUSI:

“You can’t go to a UK university campus without hearing an American accent somewhere. Some 34,000 Americans come here every year to study, and about 9,000 Brits head the other way.”

Interesting to note: (via Colleen Graffy’s Twitter feed; the HD gets his information from a whole HOST of sources!), apparently Sir Christopher Meyer, who spoke the same day at RUSI and was former British Ambassador to US, banned the use of the phrase “special relationship” at British Embassy in DC.
