Mike Fahy: Interesting article in The UK Telegraph (London) noting that the Tea Party of December 1773 sparked the American Revolution against George III. But the modern-day grassroots Tea Party may play a key role in ejecting Barack Obama from the White House in 2012, thus restoring Anglo-American relations.
Unlike the Obama administration, the new wave of conservative leaders in the United States recognise Britain as America’s most important ally, are suspicious of EU-style supranationalism, and understand the great sacrifices that the US and UK have made in the defence of liberty and freedom across the world. One thing is certain if President Obama loses the White House in 2012. His successor definitely won’t be throwing a bust of Sir Winston Churchill out of the Oval Office.
Editor: Those 1773 tea partiers got a lot of their ideas from the once mother country, now didn’t they?
