President Biden’s Alleged Anti-British Remark Ignites Diplomatic Firestorm

Accusations of Biden’s ‘English-hating’ comment during Obama-era stirs up controversy in UK-US relations


An alleged incendiary comment by President Joe Biden, dating back to his vice-presidential tenure under Barack Obama, has ignited a fiery debate about the current state of the ‘special relationship’ between the United States and the United Kingdom.

According to Alastair Campbell and Rory Stewart on the Rest is Politics podcast, Biden reportedly expressed, “I hate the English” during a private meeting in the mid-to-late 2000s. This shocking revelation has left UK political circles reeling.

“When we were briefing him on Iraq, one of my friends was completely shocked because Biden, then Vice President, said: ‘I completely understand the situation. They hate each other.

I’m Irish. I hate the English,'” revealed Stewart, a former Conservative MP. This comment, Stewart claims, was typical of Biden’s casual ‘anti-Britishness’, adding, “I have 100 percent cast-iron sourcing.”

The controversy intensifies as Biden’s recent decision to visit Northern Ireland during King Charles III’s Coronation has been regarded as a diplomatic snub.

A source from the European Research Group, speaking anonymously, lamented, “After all that we have done together, particularly regarding Ukraine, it seems like a very disappointing decision.”

David Jones, a Eurosceptic MP, suggested that Biden’s Northern Ireland visit, which coincided with the 25th anniversary of the Belfast Good Friday Agreement, could be a political move aimed at boosting his re-election prospects.

In a surprising twist, Biden later elaborated on his Northern Ireland trip, stating, “But all kidding aside, the basic fundamental values that I find is that most ethnic communities are similar.

And one of the things – I got to go back – not what I had planned on talking about, but I got to go back to Ireland for – for the – Irish accords to make sure they weren’t… the Brits didn’t screw around and Northern Ireland didn’t walk away from their commitments.”

The White House has not yet issued a statement regarding these allegations. As the dust settles on this controversy, the impact on the UK-US relationship remains to be seen.
