Biden tells Boris: “Without you, buddy, we’re not going anywhere”

Boris Johnson and Joe Biden have awakened new optimism about strengthening the special relationship between the UK and the US as they stepped up their efforts to resolve the Ukraine crisis.

Last night, the Prime Minister and the President of the United States had a 40-minute telephone conversation to discuss the situation.

Biden is said to have told Johnson at the end of the call that “we’re not going anywhere without you, buddy.”

The comment will bolster hopes for further improvement in relations between London and Washington, DC, after tensions over the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan and Brexit.

It comes just days after a new book claimed Mr Biden’s mother hated England so much that she chose to sleep on the floor rather than a bed in a hotel where the Queen once stayed.

Joe Biden’s Irish mother ‘hated’ England so much that she chose to sleep on the FLOOR rather than in the bed where the queen once stayed, a new book says.

According to the book, Joe Biden’s mother hated England so much that she chose to sleep on the floor rather than in the bed where the Queen once slept.

Georgia Pritchett was invited to meet with Biden, then Vice President, at the White House while doing research for the American comedy series Veep.

In her autobiography, she recalled that Biden initially spoke about Ukraine, from which he had just returned, but was advised to change the subject.

Noting that the screenwriter was British, he revealed how much his mother Katherine Finnegan, known as Jean, “hates the English”, telling her that she had written “hundreds” of poems on the subject.

Mrs. Pritchett wrote: “He went out in search of them and returned with hundreds of verses describing how God should smite the English and shed blood on our heads.”

He went on to recall how his Irish mother had traveled to the UK and spent the night in a hotel where she was told the Queen had once been.

Speaking of her stay at the hotel, Ms Pritchett wrote: “She was so shocked that she slept on the floor all night instead of risking sleeping on the bed the Queen slept in.”

She added, “I admire anyone whose principles come between them and a comfortable bed.”

The revelations were made in Ms. Pritchett’s autobiography, My Mess Is a Bit of Life.

During a call yesterday, Johnson reportedly told Biden that the UK wants to do everything possible to resolve the Ukraine crisis.

Sources told ITV News that the US president responded by saying, “We’re not going anywhere without you, buddy.”

Downing Street reported that the two men “agreed to remain in close contact” as the situation in Ukraine continues to evolve.

A spokeswoman for Issue 10 said: “They agreed that there remains a crucial window for diplomacy and for Russia to back off its threats against Ukraine.”

The leaders also “agreed that Western allies must remain united in the face of Russian threats.”

The special relationship between the US and the UK has escalated in recent years, especially in connection with the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan.

Mr. Johnson asked Mr. Biden to delay the US withdrawal last August to allow more time for humanitarian air travel.

But Mr Biden stuck to his tough August 31 deadline as all remaining US forces left the country and the UK followed suit.

The fact that the UK’s request was denied has led some MPs to question whether British foreign policy is at a “crossroads” after decades of intertwining with US policy.

There were also tensions around Brexit, as Mr Biden was opposed to the UK leaving the EU.

A trade deal with the US was considered by Brexit supporters to be one of the main prizes of Brexit, but hopes for a pact in the near future have faded.

Liz Truss, the foreign secretary, said last October that the US trade deal was not “the end and end of everything” as she refused to commit to the deal, which would be completed by 2030.

The White House has made clear that a trade deal with the UK is not an immediate priority for Biden.

Mr. Johnson met Mr. Biden in person for the first time at the G7 summit in Cornwall last June.

At the time, the prime minister proposed that the special relationship be renamed “unbreakable relationship”.

There were fears that the two men would not get along, as Biden had previously referred to Johnson as a “physical and emotional clone” of Donald Trump.

Democratic sources also questioned whether Johnson was an “ally” of Biden after the latter was elected in November 2020.

A new book recently revealed that Mr Biden’s mother hated England so much that she preferred to sleep on the floor rather than on a bed in a hotel where the Queen once stayed.

Biden is known for emphasizing his Irish heritage: he once wrote a letter in which he identified himself as a descendant of “an Irish-American family that made me proud of both continents.”

US President Biden can trace his Irish roots to both the Blueitts of Co-Mayo and the Finnegans of Co-Laut.

In November 2020, while on the campaign trail, a journalist asked Biden for “a quick word for the BBC”.

Mr Biden responded: “BBC? I’m Irish” before smiling and walking away.

The TV spot prompted Nigel Farage, a former leader of the Brexit Party and a prominent Trump ally, to say that “Biden hates the UK.”
