Brown's First Transatlantic Rift.

So Gordon Brown has asked Shirley Williams to become an adviser on nuclear non proliferation. Back in 2000 she was an active opponent of the missile defence scheme that was being proposed by George W. Bush, then campaigning for the presidency, and wrote several articles denouncing the scheme- 'Britain must stop America's national missile defense plans'. So now Gordon Brown is going to invite a woman who believes that Britain should take an active role in thwarting the national security plans of our most important ally to advise him on precisely that topic! Of course it should be noted that Gordon Brown holidays in Cape Cod, which isn't really pertinent to the point but all the newspapers seem to think it is necessary to add this to any discussion of Brown and the United States.
