Is the US and UK relationship still special?
The UK government needs to be "less deferential" towards the US and more willing to say no to Washington, a group of MPs has said. Do you agree?
The Commons Foreign Affairs committee said although Britain and the US still had close ties, the UK's influence had "diminished" as its economic and military power had waned.
The committee said the phrase "the special relationship" did not reflect the "modern" Anglo-American relationship and could raise unrealistic expectations about the benefits it can deliver to the UK.
Do you think a special relationship still exists between the two countries? Is the UK too deferential to the US government? How is the UK/US relationship perceived in your country?
