    Has Britain threatened US? [Obama threatened to withdraw intelligence if we did not hide the torture information]
    Has our PM deliberately insulted your head of state and Government? [Which technically is your President i guess o.O]
    Did Britain try and hide the fact potential terrorists may be released into US?

    I think they keep trying this in order to set a precedent they can point to for eternity.

    True.
    You know our home office Dave, you know how we deal with passports with our God forsaken Government.
    Do you think if these exiles applied for passport they'd be denied? They'd be let in by the incompetent

    That was addressing it and not expanding it.

    There is a specific gripe (and list of gripes) from the UK against Dear Leader's Administration. You dismiss it as "petty crap" and presumptively declare:

    When challenged on said "petty crap"--you bail.

    So, we have on Dear Leader's demerit list a string of bumblings towards Great Britain, and on Great Britain's demerit list we have a generic entry of "petty crap."

    Dear Leader is punking our allies and kow-towing to our enemies...and you are ok with this?

    Here, read this:

    ...that might anger us...
    Those four words are important. Argue against what I say, don't go and expand it into something it is not.

    Those four words mean squat. I read them the first time and they are as unimpressive now as they were then.

    Excuse-making is not something that gets better with age.

    The Government of Bermuda is facing a no confidence vote, the public are against taking in anybody.

    What excuse making? My statement was clear with those four words. You expanded it into something it was not.

    Why should they not have passports, or go anywhere they like? What part of INNOCENT marks these men as a threat? Shouldn't they be welcomed just for having survived Guantanamo? Nice avatar, BTW.
