So, going back a couple of days… this Prestwick Airport thing.
At a time when the Government are coming under pressure from public opinion for not standing tough against the US on Lebanon and a whole host of other issues. A new Foreign Secretary in place wants to stamp her authority after a previous Foreign Secretary who wasn’t afraid to go off script.
All of a sudden, a complete nothing issue pops out of nowhere. The US are not following proper procedures in shipping bombs to Israel. It’s easy for Beckett, she gets to criticise the US over a complete non-issue. The US back down and say sorry.
Anyone would think it was all orchestrated to help the Government look independent without actually having to diverge from the US at all…
