Is Gordon Brown being sidelined by the US authorities?

Gordon Brown's hopes of taking control of the forthcoming G20 summit in London took a major hit today with the revelation that Barack Obama and US government would not be seeking any "specific commitment" from the meeting of the world's most powerful countries. There is a belief that Gordon Brown had hoped to bring together a major agreement between all parties which he could have then used to increase his popularity in the UK and overseas.

It has become apparent over the last few weeks that the so-called "special relationship" between the US government and the UK government of the past is certainly more fragile than in recent times. Gordon Brown's overbearing attempts to manipulate and boss the US authorities appear to have caused serious unrest within the halls of power in America. There is a fear that Gordon Brown is paying the price for early criticism of both the US population and the US government.

Rather bizarrely, the UK government still continues to devote much of its time preaching to overseas governments to follow their lead from the UK market. This comes at a time when the UK economy is quite literally in freefall, unemployment is rising, national debt has never been higher and the UK is on the verge of a depression. Quite how the government can still try to push its policy as the way forward is as bizarre as it is unbelievable!
