Re: Joe Biden, good or bad.?

I wish journalists would stop going on about "the special relationship" that USA and UK have: It is a fantasy. Any US president will follow the America First principal, and any relationship, with any country, will be based upon that starting point.

Across the Atlantic, the Americans are amused by this constant need for PMs to push this notion of anything "special" going on. Some are more disposed to play the game (e.g. Regan and Trump), but most laugh behind our backs (e.g. Obama) at our childish need for such a pat on the head.

Off we go again this week with papers full of Biden and does-he-or-doesn't-he have a special relationship: pathetic. Biden will shaft UK if it serves US purposes.

If special relationships were to be considered then the state of Israel must occupy first place in the minds and hearts of most wealthy American politicians , who wish to protect their wealth , influence and careers .

The UK is a lightweight sadly , further weakened by our lack of impact in the corridors of power in the EU .

Re: Joe Biden, good or bad.?

🔵 President-elect Biden will be well-positioned to help President Zelenskiy fight against corruption in Ukraine, The Washington Post wrote last week in an editorial titled: “Ukraine’s anti-corruption push is stalled. Biden can help get it going again.”

“Mr. Biden...has been one of Ukraine’s best American friends, visiting the country five times while Vice President and strongly supporting its battles against Russian aggression and domestic corruption,” writes the Post.

“A Biden Justice Department could also renew efforts to pursue criminal corruption cases against key Ukrainian oligarchs, including Dmytro Firtash and Ihor Kolomoisky, who have been instrumental in blocking reforms and in promoting Russian interests in Ukraine.”
