Herr Drumpf and the toadying Theresa Mayfly [Composite: PA].

Gosh, how exciting! Theresa May will be the first foreign leader to meet Donald Trump after he became US President – and she’s bringing a nice present for his wife Melania!

Oh, how very Hello! magazine.

Apparently the present is a luxury hamper – a Scottish Quaich (pronounced “quake”) – “packed with English home produce” (English? In a Scottish container? Shurely shome mishtake!), that is intended to lure Herr Drumpf and his mate over here for more Special Relationship fun at Chequers. How could he refuse, after a gift like that?

Meanwhile, Mrs Mayfly will try to lure the President into a closer relationship with a claim that the US and the UK could lead the world.

Does she mean “lead”, or “rule”?

Either way, it’s all very squalid.

Toadying Theresa’s real mission, of course, is to smooth the way for a trade deal between the US and the UK. Herr Drumpf has already indicated interest in fast-tracking such a deal.

This is probably because Mrs May will be giving away British workers’ rights, wages, and quality of life, and selling the National Health Service to American profit-making firms, in perpetuity. That is the real aim of this visit.

Theresa May is to vow to renew the UK’s special relationship with the US “for this new age” as she prepares to meet Donald Trump for the first time.

She travels to Philadelphia later to address Republican leaders at an event attended by the US president.

She will tell them that after Brexit, a “sovereign, global” Britain wants to enhance ties with its “old friends”.

On Friday, Mrs May will be the first world leader to hold face-to-face talks with Mr Trump in the White House.

Post-Brexit trade opportunities, security and intelligence co-operation and the future of Nato are likely to feature significantly in the talks.
