This week we’ve seen Prime Minister David Cameron’s visit to America documented in the media. Accompanied by his wife, Samantha Cameron, the British prime minister flew to The White House where he spent time with Present Obama and the First Lady.
The highly published tour included a White House state dinner, a trip on the iconic Air Force One and even front row seats at an all-star Basketball game (we are assured that serious business was discussed in between).
The leaders’ wives also spent time together meeting school children at a sporting event and a group of British school girls whom the First Lady invited to the White House after visiting their school during a visit to London in 2009.
To political enthusiasts the tour may simply be a photo opportunities and I’ve read several articles which have slammed the visit as nothing more than a disaster. However others have praised the tour suggesting that it highlights the strong relationship between both nations.
Whatever your opinion the Cameron’s trip to America seems to have become a talking point- glossy magazines are even talking about it, which is incredibly positive as more people are clearly taking an interest in politics and politicians.by
