Barack Obama and the end of the Anglosphere

Financial Times
"The crucial point is that he is America’s first Pacific president"

. . . "Still, any Brits who feel nostalgic for the Anglosphere, and a little resentful about Mr Obama’s “back of the queue” comments, might reflect how much they still benefit from the cultural power of the US. The traditional Anglosphere may be in disrepair. But a different sort of Anglosphere has emerged in Brussels, with English now the common language of the EU institutions."

The writer does not expand on Mr. Obama's view of Britain as the colonizer of Africa, including Kenya. Perhaps this explains his disdain for Winston Churchill .
