David Cameron May Assume PM-ship Pre-Insulted By Obama

By which I mean our Spock-like First Diplomat already insulted him on-the-record earlier this year, when it was looking very likely he'd be the next PM. (In fact, it looked almost guaranteed he'd be the PM earlier in the year; Cameron didn't gain as many MPs as it was once thought he would.)

So, here's Captain Love on England's next likely leader:

ccording to tomorrow’s New Statesman, Barack Obama was unimpressed by his encounter with David Cameron earlier this year and commented: “What a lightweight!”

According to James Macintyre’s report, Cameron’s attempt to stress his pro-American and Eurosceptic credentials did not meet with Obama’s approval. According to Macintyre’s diplomatic sources, the Democratic candidate was “distinctly unimpressed” and labelled Cameron a lightweight.

Macintyre notes that 48 hours earlier Obama had delivered a speech in Berlin stressing “the importance of Europe’s role in our security and our future”.

Following the meeting with Cameron, Obama apparently asked officials for more information on Tory Euroscepticism. Macintyre also speculates that Cameron’s support for the Iraq war – which Obama opposed – did not help the relationship either.

Yes, Mr. President, but does he also tea-bag?
