WHO LOST BRITAIN?:

Obama maintains silence in first major test (Rupert Cornwell, 31 December 2008, Independent)

During the autumn presidential election campaign, Barack Obama's running mate, Joe Biden, was much mocked for suggesting that a President Obama would be tested by a major foreign crisis within a few months of coming to power.

In fact, that major crisis has erupted even before he takes office, in the shape of Israel's massive assault on Gaza – and the man who, in 20 days' time, will become the most powerful man in the world has said nothing.

Shhhh! As the world waits for Obama to voice his opinion on Gaza, America's President-elect hits the golf course (Daily Mail, 30th December 2008)
Barack Obama remained silent over the violence in Gaza as Israel today threatened to continue its attacks for weeks.

Instead, the President-elect is continuing his 12-day Christmas holiday in Hawaii and was seen enjoying a round of golf.

He joined a group of friends at a private club near his £6million rented, beach-front holiday home yesterday.
