President Bush and Britain's New Prime Minister Brown
July 29, 2007 9:47pm CST
I have the feeling that it will not be "business as usual" when these two get together. After all, Britain's new PM does not have the buddy-buddy relationship with President Bush that PM Blair did. It will be interesting, to say the least. I'm thinking that the reason for the meeting is that Bush wants to win Brown over to his side. What are your thoughts? Sure, it is assumed that the two nations always present a united front, but things do change sometimes.

I don't think anything will change with Brown who I dislike and will not recognise as the Prime minister as I did not vote him in. He has ruined this country with all the target setting he has introduced in education and the health service. I am sure he will lick Bush's backside the same as the evil Blair did. It just seems that this is what happens. We had it with Thatcher and Reagan all those years ago too. He will carry on the tradition I am sure.

i think that brown will still maintain a united front with bush, we are too heavily involved not to, but i think that Brown has learned from blairs mistakes, many brits lost faith in blair because of his pandering to bush, which is perhaps part of the reason he is no longer prime minister.As many brits have a negative view of bush and the way he handles things.

The WORLD has a negative view of Bush and rightly so. He is an idiot. I think Brown will keep the US as a friendly alli but I don't see him being a yes man to Bush. I was disappointed in Tony Blair and the way he bowed down to Bush. Before that I thought he was a fairly good guy. It cost him his position and he will have to live out the rest of his life with that knowledge. Bush on the other hand thinks he is the greatest president ever and doesn't have the sense to recognize the truth.

Whilst Brown will, I think, strive to maintain a good working relationship with Bush, unlike the pup Tony, Bush will find he is no longer dealing with a toady but a man with some mettle to him. Nor do I think, though he may not publicly declare it, Brown is as pro-war as Bush or Blair. Brown government will be less autocratic and more liberal, I hope. (American's please learn what liberal really means before reaching for your side-arms) all the best urban
