If Blair ever thought there was a special relationship, he now knows otherwise. From an interview on Britain’s ITV, via the Daily Telegraph:
Mr Bush bluntly said that the Prime Minister could expect no special favours even though he had supported the war in Iraq.
“I go to the G8 not really trying to make him look bad or good, but I go to the G8 with an agenda that I think is best for our country,” he said in an interview with ITV’s Tonight with Trevor McDonald, to be shown tonight.
“I really don’t view our relationship as one of quid pro quo. Tony Blair made decisions on what he thought was best for keeping the peace and winning the war on terror, as I did,” he added.
Thanks for clarifying, George.
