British Brand Bush A Danger ...
One thousand thanks to one of our best blogging buddies, Mark from Ireland (and from Gorilla's Guides), for his heads-up on this great Guardian poll-piece.
Cheers, Mark, mate. We might have missed this, if not for you.

· US allies think Washington threat to world peace
· Only Bin Laden feared more in United Kingdom

What have we been telling you?
Time after time, after time, after time ...
All the same, in spite of all we've always said, so many self-styled smart arses - usually sniping from states-side - continually kidded themselves (and contrived constantly to convince others), that we were no more credible than a couple of crazy, clap-trapping old Brits.
So eat your hearts out, assholes, as you hear from the horses' mouths.
America is now seen as a threat to world peace by its closest neighbours and allies, according to an international survey of public opinion published today that reveals just how far the country's reputation has fallen among former supporters since the invasion of Iraq.Go to the Guardian to ogle all of the article.
Carried out as US voters prepare to go to the polls next week in an election dominated by the war, the research also shows that British voters see George Bush as a greater danger to world peace than either the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-il, or the Iranian president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
Both countries were once cited by the US president as part of an "axis of evil", but it is Mr Bush who now alarms voters in countries with traditionally strong links to the US.
Remember this though - we two told you so - ages ago; something like several zillion times - or so it sodding seemed to us.
