Blair 'feels betrayed by Bush on Lebanon'
The alliance between George Bush and Tony Blair is in danger after it was revealed that the Prime Minister believes the President has 'let him down badly' over the Middle East crisis.
A senior Downing Street source said that, privately, Mr Blair broadly agrees with John Prescott, who said Mr Bush's record on the issue was 'crap'.
The source said: "We all feel badly let down by Bush. We thought we had persuaded him to take the Israel-Palestine situation seriously, but we were wrong. How can anyone have faith in a man of such low intellect?"Analysis- Bush is the most powerful man in the world but he can't force respect even from friends and allies. How much more respect and prestige does the United States have to lose before the people say enough?
