The special/essential relationship

If we now have an essential relationship with the USA does it mean we have been upgraded or downgraded and if it is an upgrade are we now a Cocker Spaniel as opposed to a poodle?


The ever-changing sphere of semantics, Finks.

Just as 'gay' has altered it's meaning over our lifetime, so too has the word 'special':

ie 'Special Constables', 'Special needs', 'Special Olympics', etc.

Ergo 'essential' in lieu of 'special' will just have to do for now; just until some minority or other assigns yet a totally different slant to that word, too.:glasses9:
Personally I think we have been dumped as Netanyahu said yesterday when addressing congress that America is Israel's best friend and Israel is America's best friend. :sad10:
