Zerohedge is carrying an article that addresses that provocative question. Obviously I can't vouch for everything that's said. Nevertheless, this is an article that IMO repays a careful reading: The "Special Relationship" Is Collapsing... And That's A Good Thing.
As it happens, Lifesite (banned by Google!) carried a similar article yesterday. It focused, again, on British diplomacy but this time on the role the Brits played in getting Jorge Bergoglio elected. Sound far fetched? Not so much: ‘British coup’: Author claims UK gov’t may have helped in Pope Francis’ 2013 election.
