UK hints at foreign policy shift

    A British Cabinet minister has hinted at a change in the relationship between the UK and US. Speaking in the US, International Development Secretary Douglas Alexander emphasised the need for “new alliances, based on common values”. He warned against unilateralism and called for an “internationalist approach” to global problems. Correspondents say the speech appeared to be a “coded criticism” of the policies of President George W Bush.
