That makes no sense whatsoever - but is pretty much par for the course in this circus. I love the insanity and stupidity of it all."*bewilderingly, we let our colonies vote in primaries but not in the actual election"
I think that taking an Englishman to any basketball game is an insult."which is all to say, OB basically took Cameron to the equivalent of QPR playing Wolves to avoid relegation. consider yourselves disrespected, ye people of England."

The always reliable Daily Mail insists GB actually did BO all right.hey now, it was a collection of classic american cinema. chinatown! godfather I and II! if that's not a great gift I don't know what is.
(GW, of course, gave him a sweet bomber jacket. just the kind of thing gordon brown would wear)
The Brown and Obama exchange of gifts came in March 2009 when Mr Brown visited the White House as prime minister. He presented the President with a black and gold pen with a pen holder made from the wood of HMS Gannet, a British sloop used to fight slavery.
It was an expensive gift given that, together with a Winston Churchill biography by Martin Gilbert and his book Churchill And America, the total value came to £10,300, according to a register of foreign government gifts to U.S. federal employees in 2009.

On his first visit to Buckingham Palace in 2009, President Obama gave Queen Elizabeth II an iPod. Given a second chance Tuesday, his gift for the British monarch was decidedly more traditional.
According to the White House, Obama gave the queen a collection of rare memorabilia and photographs in a handmade leather-bound album that chronologically highlights her parents' visit to the United States in 1939.
