Irony of ironies – the US is now the British of the 1790s…

A quote from BBC journalist Gavin Esler on the Newsnight emails:

“Today is American Independence Day, the day on which the patriots of the United States managed to cast off the rule of foreigners who attempted to direct their affairs from the capital of a superpower some 3,000 miles away. By an extraordinary coincidence this is also the day on which Newsnight will be examining what is being done to foreign prisoners – including British ones – held by the United States in Guantanamo Bay in Cuba.”

Never heard it said better meself.
