Romney’s Gaffetastic Trip to the UK
Mitt Romney’s trip to Britain is not exactly going swimmingly: Mitt Romney Rebuked by David Cameron in London Visit.
Mr Romney Goes to London: barely having exited the threshold of the prime minister’s residence, the American candidate blurts that he is now in the club with British intelligence.
For our American readership, this isn’t like bragging you just met David Petraeus. The British take on the national secret intelligence service comes with an extra-heavy dollop of the whole secret thing. The very existence of the MI6 was not officially acknowledged until 1994.
Good luck, Romney handlers: this is only stop No. 1 on a three-stop international tour.
