Queen Elizabeth II

And who supported Brexit?

Rupert Murdoch.

And who did Murdoch support in the US election?

Donald Trump.

And what has Donald Trump said about Great Britain?

Mr Trump, whose mother was Scottish, said the UK was a "very, very special place for me and for our country"

...Downing Street confirmed that Mr Trump and Mrs May had since spoken on Thursday and had agreed that "the US-UK relationship was very important and very special and that building on this would be a priority for them both".

"President-elect Trump set out his close and personal connections with, and warmth for, the UK. He said he was confident that the special relationship would go from strength to strength."

And what about other politicians?

Note the highlighted words of Inane Duncan Smith and Jacob Rees-Mogg (:
Former Conservative leader Iain Duncan Smith told BBC Two's Newsnight that he believed there was a "real opportunity" for the UK to "reinvigorate" its relationship with the US, arguing it had been "in the freezer now for about eight years".

"I think there's a real opportunity with Donald Trump there for us to be able to reinvigorate that relationship. Brexit means we are now freer to make arrangements.

"He's already said he would want to see some kind of agreement with the UK and from that, we can build - whether its' Nato or whether it's global relations, whether it's about arguing over WTO and trade."

Earlier, Conservative MP Jacob Rees-Mogg told the BBC's World at One he saw both Brexit and Mr Trump's election as a "triumph of optimism for people in America, who believe in the American Dream and believed that the liberal elite were taking it away from them" while in the UK he believed it was "about feeling that the UK could stand on its own two feet".

Starting to think you've been had?
