Danish Prime Minister's "Selfie" With Obama, David Cameron Part of Her "Informal Style"

Helle Thorning-Schmidt


Helle Thorning-Schmidt is into breaking down barriers. Not content with becoming the first female prime minister in Denmark, yesterday she enjoyed another first: creating the very first 'selfie' of the special relationship in action (with her sandwiched in the middle). Never before has the Anglo-American relationship been recorded via selfie – unless I suspect a significant amount of alcohol has been quaffed by both Mr Cameron and Mr Obama.

All three naughty leaders have endured a decent ribbing the media for their cheeky antics. It was a memorial service after all. Did Ms Thorning-Schmidt not get the memo? A grim-faced Michelle Obama certainly did.
