Mitt Romney decided that election year is a good time to trash talk our allies, so he said this: "England [sic] 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. And if it hadn't been separated from the continent by water, it almost certainly would have been lost to Hitler's ambitions."
Also, he went on to express doubts that the Brits could pull-off hosting the Olympic games, and doubted whether or not they actually gave a shit.
Jeremy Clarkson, Top Gear's lightning rod/host, had a few thigns to say on twitter about the presidential hopeful. First, it was, "My ideas for the opening ceremony were rejected. I suggested we should crash a burning Jag into Mitt Romney" and then, "Mitt Romney. Go fuck yourself. We are better than you."
This is how diplomacy is done.
