Blyth in USA Today on US-British Relationship

March 12, 2012

Institute Professor Mark Blyth commented on the waning importance of the "special" US – British relationship. "The policy elites in Britain would like to still believe there is a special relationship between the U.S. and Britain," Blyth observed, speaking in advance of President Obama's Wednesday meeting with British Prime Minister David Cameron. "The American focus has shifted toward Germany and the eurozone and away from the so-called special relationship with Britain."
