Prime Minister’s US comments

Asked if the Prime Minister stood by what he said regarding Britain being the junior partner to the US in WWII, the PMS said that the Prime Minister’s words spoke for themselves.

Asked if the Prime Minister would apologise, the PMS said that the Prime Minister held our armed forces in the highest regard. The particular comment referred to was part of an interview he had given in the US; the Prime Minister had been giving a general response and referred to the 1940s. We would not make any further comments.

Asked if the Prime Minister was embarrassed by his poor grasp of history, the PMS said that she would not get into commenting on the Prime Minister’s knowledge of history; the Prime Minister held the armed forces in the highest regard. One of the people the Prime Minister looked up to was Winston Churchill and he was very proud of Britain’s achievements in the Second World War.
