Since the early 2000s, the ‘Special Relationship’ between the UK and US has been a relatively robust one, and the Obama administration was counting on British support for its proposed military action against Syria. On Thursday, the UK’s House of Commons bucked the trend for US/UK military collaboration, and voted against any British involvement in Syria, the first such vote against military action since 1782 . Here, Sean Kippin looks at the best pieces of news and analysis from the US and UK that have emerged from this seismic moment in the UK’s parliamentary history.
