This week, UK prime minister Theresa May is visiting Donald Trump. Prior to meeting both participants spouted the old garbage about the ‘special relationship.’ This relationship has always focussed on arms deals and enabling financial gangsters to dodge tax and, of course, the USA have always been in the stronger position in negotiations.
At their meetings both leaders will get assurances as part of the ‘special relationship.’
Trump will get the following assurances from May
- Continued flow of British tax-payers’ money to support the US arms industry
- Unlimited flushing of British tax payers’ money down the toilet to pay for the useless Trident missile system
- Unrestricted avoidance of tax in UK for the US financial industry
- Removal of any obstacles for US media to acquire British media
- Full support for US businesses to take control of British public services in health, education, security and transport, including assistance with tax avoidance
- Unequivocal UK support at UN and at NATO for all aggressive US military acts
- Full support for US government use of torture
- Full support for US government use of sanctions against other countries
- Full support for anti-Islam denial of visas to refugees
- No criticism of racist voter suppression in USA
- No criticism of restrictions on domestic and foreign media when operating in USA
- No criticism of the destruction of national parks and wildernesses in the USA
- No criticism of US government denial of the existence of man-made climate change
- No criticism of unconstitutional restriction and denial of access to abortion in USA
- Assistance with unconstitutional restriction and denial of access to abortion in other countries via the ‘global gag.’
- Assistance for all Trump’s ‘businesses’ in the UK including help with planning permission, tax avoidance, land acquisition, etc.
In return May will receive the following assurances from Trump
- Trump will make some vague unreliable comments about future ‘trade deals’
Theresa May will then return to the UK with a false triumphant air and declare that Brexit will be great because there will be lots of deals with the USA. The media will blame Jeremy Corbyn.
