During the G8 Summit President George Bush was overheard haling UK Prime MinsterTony Blair with the words "Yo, Blair" followed by his proposed solution to the Middle East crisis.

Professor Wyn Grant, a Professor of Politics and International Relations at the UK's University of Warwick, said the conversation suggested "that perhaps Blair doesn't have the kind of relationship with Bush that he would sometimes like to claim he has."

But he said the conversation only reflected reality. "The U.S.–UK relationship throughout the whole period since World War Two has always been an asymmetrical one. It's always been one in which the U.S. has been dominant."
