Even I'd been fooled by the British media's reporting that Gordon Brown's meeting with Barack Obama had been a great success, a strong basis for continued development of the 'Special Relationship'. I've filched this clip from Guido which gives us an entirely different perspective, and tells us how the meeting was seen in the US. What stuck me was the convincing posture of boredom that the American President managed to convey, as he sat there and and listened to our Prime Minister talking. Its worth a look. Only about 30 seconds.
