Touche, sirs

There's a bit more strain on the "special relationship," apparently:
It seems that the British authorities have insisted that the press in the White House "bubble" have to show passports when arriving in Britain.

This is unusual - most countries treat the travelling White House press with a gracious acknowledgement of what they believe to be their status.

Perhaps the Brits are seeking revenge after that strange incident at the White House when press traveling with Gordon Brown had trouble getting in.
