Cameron's Art Pressie

It has emerged that British Prime Minister David Cameron went to Washington DC armed with this canvas by London artist Ben Eine - Twentyfirst Century City - as a pressie for President Obama, together with scented candles for Michelle and two pairs of candy-coloured wellies for the girls. What about a chew for the dog? And will Eine's painting, allegedly worth £2,500, find a place on the walls of the White House or disappear into a broom closet? My choice would be the broom closet. If this artwork doesn't sour Anglo-American relations, nothing will.
