The "Special Relationship"

There is much nonsense spouted by some about the so called "special relationship" between the USA and UK.

There is nothing "special", aside from the fact that both countries more or less speak the same language and, in a minority, there is a genetic link between the two countries.

Aside from the above, "special" only comes into play when the self interests of both nations happen to coincide, or the UK kowtows to the US because it needs something.
