Anyone who has spent time in Latin America recently knows Mr Bush is the least popular US president among Latin Americans in history.

The so-called Fourth Summit of the Americas on Friday and yesterday was supposed to be about eradicating poverty and spreading democracy. With all respect to the diplomatic envoys and the hundreds of millions of pounds spent on making the summit happen, little significant was ever going to come out of it. As it turned out, the theme of "Bush, get out!" was eerily reminiscent of the "Yanqui, go home" of the Eighties in Nicaragua, El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, where the US attempted to prop up military-backed regimes.

"Bush probably doesn't even know that people here are so solidly against him," he said. Mr Katz earlier this year described the American President as "the most disagreeable man on the planet".

Violent protests have turned a prestigious foreign policy trip to South America into another public relations catastrophe

Bush left the summit before it ended as discussions about whether to adopt a clause scheduling FTAA talks for next year continued past a deadline set for a summit declaration.
