End of the “special relationship?” Secret US memo reportedly says UK losing influence with Washington

A secret memo prepared by a Congressional think tank and seen by the Daily Mail says that the US may need a “reassessment of the special relationship” with its key economic partner, Britain, “because its geopolitical setting has been changing.”

Winston Churchill’s 1946 speech to Westminster College, in Fulton, coined the phrase “special relationship” to describe the exceptionally friendly political, diplomatic, economic, military and cultural relations between the United Kingdom and the United States.
