UK: Romney's diplomatic fail

The Economist

Romney in Britain

Diplomatic, offensive

Still, not a great start to the tour. The most biting remarks came from anonymous officials. The Daily Mail quotes one mandarin as saying
What a car crash. We are speechless.
while the unkindest cut of all came from a "diplomatic source" in The Times:
It is worse than Sarah Palin in terms of basic diplomacy.
Update: It may be a good job that the British press hasn't read Mr Romney's book, "No Apology". Foreign Policy points out that the book contains a section that says
England is just a small island. Its roads and houses are small. With few exceptions, it doesn't make things that people in the rest of the world want to buy.
