This'll test 'the special relationship'?

“US requests detention of Iran tanker in Gibraltar”

Place your bets Messrs et Madames.

Not sure what you mean. What/who’s special relationship?

I say that England tells Trump to fck off.

The so-called ‘special relationship’ between the US and UK, developed by The Blessed Margaret and Ronald Reagan.

That special relationship has existed since we bailed you all out out of WWI and then had to do it again in WWII.

That would be a colossally stupid reaction on their part.

Oh I see, I thought it predated them, but perhaps was more galvanized then.

It probably did; I used the word ‘developed’ in the ‘progressed’ sense of the word, not in the other definition viz, originated.
