We didn't bankrupt you, you did that all by yourself.What benefit has the UK garnered from our special relationship ? we surrendered the empire on US demand after you bankrupted the nation.
You seem to oddly believe we owed you everything you got from the USA during the war.
We are not one of your commonwealths or dominions.
We owe your crown no fealty then or now.
We had no mutual defence treaties with you, or had any obligations whatsoever to go to war because you did.
What other nation would hand over for free all the Equipment you received under Lend Lease? did your soviet allies do so? At least the Poles brought Enigma with them
That we did aid you and it cost you nothing unless at the end of the war you decided to keep items under the LL act is YOUR choice. Even then a Dakota (US C-47 or 53) which cost the US taxpayer $88K dollars cost you the UK taxpayer $8K dollars if you wanted to keep it.
Under Lend Lease you could-
A- return equipment
B- dump equipment
C- certify equipment used or destroyed in action
without paying a cent towards it
D- Keep equipment at vastly reduced cost to you
