Has Barack Obama got his revenge on Gordon Brown?

Just 12 hours ago the UK government was openly suggesting that Gordon Brown's visit to the White House, the first EU PM to visit the new president, was the perfect opportunity to make political headway and reinvigorate the Labour vote in the UK. Whether the US authorities have taken umbrage with this or they are out for revenge after a number of comments emitting from the UK authorities angered US politicians remains to be seen. However, either way the severe scaling down of Gordon Brown's visit to the White House has caused major embarrassment within Number 10 Downing Street.

It seems as though Gordon Brown had very much staked his political future on his visit to the White House and his chance to command the world stage once again. He had even congratulated the US president on copying his policy regarding the US bank bailout which many believed was a little far-fetched and uncalled for. It looks as though Gordon Brown's obsession to dominate the world stage, even though the UK economy is one of the worst performers in the world, may well have come back to bite him and caused serious damage to his immediate political future. Damage limitation would appear to be the name of the game at the moment although what exactly Gordon Brown can salvage from this disastrous visit remains to be seen.
