Some Views From Across the Pond

James Delingpole, writing for The Telegraph, asks whether Michelle Obama is behind the snub of Gordon Brown. If her perceptions of history as described by Delingpole are correct, and she has the the president's ear, we will convert many friends into antagonists.

This last sentence was not inspired by the size of Obama's ears.

In the meantime, The Daily Mail reports that Obama gave Gordon Brown 25 DVD's of great American movies. As the newspaper reports:

It was the equivalent of receiving a pair of socks from an unfamiliar
aunt at Christmas - and a less-than-glowing affirmation of the UK-US

The pathetic package included the following movies:
1. Citizen Kane
2. The Godfather
3. Casablanca
4. Raging Bull
5. Singing In The Rain
6. Gone With The Wind
7. Lawrence Of Arabia
8. Schindler's List
9. Vertigo
10. The Wizard Of Oz
11. City Lights
12. The Searchers
13. Star Wars: Episode IV
14. Psycho
15. 2001: A Space Odyssey
16. Sunset Boulevard
17. The Graduate
18. The General
19. On The waterfront
20. It's A Wonderful Life
21. China Town
22. Some Like It Hot
23. The Grapes Of Wrath
24. ET: The Extra Terrestrial
25. To Kill A Mocking Bird.
