“Perfidious Albion” – a term you should know, revitalized due to UK regime’s diplomatic outrages against Ecuador & Wikileaks’ Julian Assange [Wikipedia]

Perfidious Albion is a pejorative phrase used within the context of international relations and diplomacy to refer to acts of duplicity, treachery and hence infidelity (with respect to promises made to or alliances formed with other nation states) by monarchs or governments of Britain (or England) in their pursuit of self-interest and the requirements of realpolitik.

Perfidious signifies one who does not keep his faith or word (from the Latin word "perfidia"), while Albion is an ancient Roman name for Great Britain.
