The link included here was written by Benedict Brogan, and I don't know who he is. The tone of the article seemed relatively balanced. It didn't appear extremist, but that is all I can say about it.
In this following quote, the Winston Churchill bust was on loan, and returned rather than a rejected gift. If it was in fact a loan, it would be wrong to not return it at some point. This makes that aspect of the scenario a little less clear in terms of being an insult.
My impression from this report is that the Bush and Clinton Administrations went to greater lengths to give the red carpet treatment to Britain. In Bush's case there was a specific political agenda to call for this. I do not remember as much about the Clinton's relationship to Britain. There is a difference between an end to strategically giving the four star treatment for political ends, and an outright insult. It seems possible, if not likely, that it doesn't have to be one extreme or the other. It is true that in politics and celebrity there is much ego involvement which creates these scenarios in the media.

Yeah, no brains needed---or just go fart in a chruch, any chruch.
No brains are needed to enjoy Norm MacDonald on Dennis' radio show? He's brilliant on those.
P.S. Farting in church is funny. Farting in a priest's face would be even funnier, unless you're an altar boy and he's forcing you to do it (and I'd still find that hilarious, although I am sure the altar boy in question wouldn't agree).
Who wants to try a bottle of merc's "Extroversion Olive Oil?"
Resolute, and a first edition of a 7 volume biography of Winston Churchill - but Obama gives Brown the equivalent of a pair of socks. The phony gifts of 25 DVD’S included Raging Bull, Casablanca, Psycho, The Graduate...Wasn't he trying to repair our image in the world? How could he be so stupid?
