Only the Times still looks across the Atlantic

The Syria vote turned against David Cameron – and even the Sun

It's not only David Cameron who has another humbling think coming on Syria. Try this note from a bothered Bun: "In an exclusive poll for the Sun [on Thursday], three out of four Brits said they were happy Britain was NOT rushing into action against Syria. And in a separate online poll, Sun readers voted against a strike on Syria, with 54% saying it was wrong."

Result: muted coverage before a second-day death notice for the special relationship – unlike the Times, which still editorialised on the "Tragedy of the Commons" and found its only "crumb of comfort" in the thought that Barack Obama could still cruise on regardless.

One simple perception has underpinned Murdoch-world ever since Rupert assembled it decades ago. He believes the Atlantic alliance matters more than anything (which is why he's not keen on the EU). But now? Only a single, non-thunderous voice of despair raises that cry aloft in a Fleet Street whose readers (and leader writers) have gone elsewhere. © 2013 Guardian News and Media Limited or its affiliated companies.
