Super Nannies

£448 million to be spent on troubleshooters for problem families!

A relationship based on co-dependence where both leaders have come of age and are seeing eye to eye on foreign policies, especially The Middle East.

As I watched Cameron and Obama playing table tennis yesterday, I wondered whether their relationship was of the same calibre of JK Kennedy and MacMillan, Thatcher and Reagan, Bush and Blair.
