The medium-term outcome of the Iraq war is likely to be greater global polarisation. This is the view of veteran BBC business correspondent Jonty Bloom. Reporting for the periodical "Accountancy," he comments on a gathering mood of anger which is focused on its former friends. This is influencing the mood of world trade talks. In any trade fight Great Britain could be tied in with the European Union. It may incur the displeasure of the White House.
