As you know, Mitt Romney has visited the UK. The media he has received has been almost universally hostile. That is not in the least surprising. ALL the major UK political parties are pro-Obama (yes, even and perhaps particularly the “Conservatives”) and our media still carries a torch for President Hubris. So Romney had no chance. I can only imagine the “welcome” Sarah Palin would attract from our biased media.
The fact of the matter is that Romney went about it the wrong way. He should have played the Obama game – celebrated multiculturalism, grovelled to US enemies, apologised for America, endorsed socialism, praised Islam. That way he would have won plaudits from one and all.
Of course in doing so, he would also have abandoned any vestige of that which is Conservative. David Cameron sets the standard for that. Well done Mitt for speaking a little truth but over here, fingers are in ears and we just don’t to hear you.
