Three months after royal wedding fever gripped American TV networks it appears Fox News have taken it upon themselves to remodel the British constitution.
In the parallel universe related to their viewers, we have now ditched the monarchy and replaced Liz II with Dave I. In a slide captioned “Cameron in Command”, the Murdoch-owned channel calls the prime minister the “UK president”.
And with their poor grasp on even the basics of British politics, it should come as no surprise that Cameron’s mixed performance over the last few days sees is spun as the paragon of decisive leadership. Faced with riots across London, viewers are told that Cameron “comes out himself immediately” while Barack Obama allows “congress sits at home” despite the U.S. debt crisis.
Dave “came out immediately” … hours after telling everyone he wasn’t interrupting his holiday in Tuscany.
