It caused quite a stir when Danish Prime Minister, Helle Thorning
-Schmidt made a so – called selfie at the memorial service for Nelson
Mandela, where she took a picture of herself with Barack Obama and
David Cameron. The British press went bunkoes and described the scene
in different ways including disrespectful to Mandela and
unstatesmanlike. For example the Sun newspaper wrote in large print on
its FrontPage Disrespectfull.
But not all saw it that way not least the Americans who somehow have a
different sense to humour and look at events. For on Tuesday, the
American newspaper Washington Post put the selfie of Helle
Thorning-Schmidt, Obama and Cameron on the list of the year's 18 best
political pictures and it came sixth place.

According to the Danish media, it is unclear why Helle Thorning-Schmidt
was placed next to the world's most powerful man, Barack Obama.
