The Sun newspaper has issued a 'death notice' on its front page after MPs voted against military action in Syria during a House of Commons debate on Thursday.
Downing Street insisted that the US special relationship is still intact, saying in statement: "President Obama said he fully respected the PM's approach and that he had not yet taken a decision on the US response."
However the newspaper has responded with a notice that states: "The Special Relationship. Died at home after a sudden illness on Thursday, August 29, 2013, aged 67".
David Cameron has backed Barack Obama after the president announced he is seeking congressional support to launch military action in Syria.
David Cameron accepted the public did not want intervention in Syria. But he might have got a different result if his ministers voted.
