When Winston Churchill called the bond between the Americans and the British a “special relationship,” he couldn’t possibly have imagined just how intertwined the political fortunes of both countries would eventually become.
Three years ago, the British and the Americans fired the opening salvo of a populist revolt which continues to resonate around the world. The British, fed up with an increasingly out of touch bureaucracy in Brussels, decisively voted to leave the European Union. Americans, outraged at a self-serving elite who left their countrymen behind, sent President Trump to Washington to “drain the swamp”.
And in both countries there are Deep State bureaucrats and entrenched politicians working in overdrive to undermine the democratic will of the people, and to subvert the national interest for the benefit of international globalism.
