relations noted that ‘The simple, hardly debatable answer’ to questions of the future of the special relationship ‘is that we need the support and sympathy of the British. If they are unable to go it alone, in their relative weakness, neither can we everywhere. We touch one another at too many points and are still affected by what the other does in too many situations to be able to dispense with mutual support of some kind.’14 There were four particular issues. First, the United States still needed Britain’s influence within Europe. Second, in economic terms, the US

withstand any potential conflict.68 However, British Prime Minister Anthony Eden’s gamble backfired when the Americans condemned British actions. The result, James Mayall has argued, was that it ‘finally exposed the fiction of the “Special Relationship,” that being, the reality of British dependence on, rather than influence over, the United States’.69 While the Suez debacle undoubtedly exposed the disparities in power between the US and Britain, it also became a departure point for the reinvigoration of relations and a movement towards joint Anglo-​American planning in

Cluny was not the first or the last monastery to acquire exemption privileges from the papacy; it nevertheless stands as the model against which the medieval practice is habitually measured. That it prefigured the monastic renewal of the eleventh and twelfth centuries is now a theory largely refuted by scholars. 6 While the monastery’s foundation charter was ‘profoundly ambivalent about the pope’, 7 the confirmation of Cluny’s rights and liberties in the tenth and eleventh centuries nevertheless reveals a special relationship with the medieval papacy.

determination’ of international law, but part of the complex system whereby custom develops. 3 Why the Commission did not go further As explained above, the Commission did not go far enough in assessing its role in the development of custom. Although it accepted that its output ‘may have particular value’, it attached this value to its ‘special relationship to states’, which is only part of the story. It also only addressed its role in the commentary, not in the conclusions themselves. This is in contrast with ‘Teachings’ and ‘Decisions of courts and tribunals

Global Britain and Brexit England
Ben Wellings

regional player during the referendum campaign, as if it had no interest in the world beyond Estonia. The concept of ‘Global Britain’ that emerged from Theresa May’s pro-Anglosphere Cabinet was itself undergirded by a memory of sovereignty predicated on ties with English-speaking peoples and an interpretation of a ‘swashbuckling’ past that, as we have seen in preceding chapters, resonated with the rehabilitation of Empire in English narratives. This emphasis on the past was also evident in Brexiteer interpretations of the ‘Special Relationship’ with the United

Introduction In the United Kingdom the 1980s were characterised by the avaricious individualism of the Thatcherite agenda, which dismantled the industrial economy on which the nation’s class-based and regionally-distinctive culture had historically rested, promoted narcissistic consumerism as acme of human aspiration through wholesale valorisation of the cultural products of American capitalism and turned to military action in the Falklands and the Gulf as a means of ensuring electoral victory and cementing the much-vaunted ‘special relationship’ with the United

Unpacking the political satire in Veep
Michael P. Young

with our own national allegiances bitingly reveals the satirical connection between Veep 's use of schadenfreude (literally German for ‘harm joy’) and its contrasting duality. ‘Special Relationship’ One moment in Veep which most impressively toys with the tensions inherent in schadenfreude occurs in ‘Special Relationship’ (Season 3, Episode 7). The episode begins with Selina and her campaign team in London, where they are gathered ostensibly to commemorate fallen soldiers from the First World War, although, in fact, Selina

Anglo-American realities and relations

exaggerated fiction of the British aristocracy, perceptions of Americans abroad, and a new way in which to understand the cultural norms and ‘special relationship’ between these two countries. Through a close examination of the television program personalities and dramatic dialogue of British and American characters, the series serves as a vessel to dissect the rhetoric of a script, analyze Anglo-American cultural mores, and reconsider the resulting political upheaval due to the decline of the British aristocracy as the long nineteenth century came to an end, which

obscurity until the Restoration, but were actively appropriated and exploited by regimes searching for legitimacy. Not only was Whitehall Palace revived and reoccupied, but Westminster Abbey became in a sense the first ‘state church’, while its daughter church of St Margaret’s can be shown to have truly begun its special relationship with the House of Commons in these years. Westminster not only served as the daily ceremonial heart of government (both religious and secular), but also hosted the organs and personnel of government to a remarkable degree. The political
