It was a phrase coined by Churchill more than 60 years ago: Britain and American's special relationship was forged in shared sacrifice.But report by MPs says the term is now out-dated, inaccurate, and needs to go.

"We need to,not be sentimental about this relationship,we need to work on the basis of our national interest and take a clear-headed,unsentimental approach towards the United States. Sometimes there will be differences."

It was the World II and its aftermath that simmered the transatlantic alliance. By then was caused, another affair was acted strongest: the statue in London of America's wartime president Franklin Roosevelt was unveiled in 1948,it was paid off entirely from donations,160,000 grateful Brits each gave 5 schillings,covering the entire costs in just 6 days.

In the 80's Margaret Thatcher, a model of rigid rule abroad brought the special relationship to the full again.

"Welcome the Prime Minister from our strongest friend, as it closes the airline as a dorm meant of Benjamin Gate."

But the cross party Foregin Affairs Committee says it was Tony Blair supported for George Bush over the Iraq War that shaked many people's view of today's speacial relationship, the perception right or wrong: Britain was Washiton's puppet.

"Today we are renewing our special relationship for new times." Barack Obama's more pragmatic approach to foreign policy has also altered the alliance, the report says. Britain should do the same. And its deference to Washinton should end and UK should learn to say No and put up our own national interest first.

The report says that the UK must be realistic about its influence on US policy, language, culture and history still bind this, our relationship remains close, if perhaps no longer special.
