The Washington elite believe that the British people should serve Washington’s interest and not their own. To this end, President Obama has been sent to London to emphasize that the UK must remain in the EU.
Does this make you wonder why it is important to Washington for the British people to surrender their national sovereignty to the European Union? If not, it should.
It is easier and less expensive for Washington to control the EU government than to control 28 separate governments. For example, if Washington wants to open up Europe to Monsanto, it is easier for Washington to bribe one EU government than to deal with 28 governments, especially as the European Commission is not accountable to the European people, whereas the individual populations of the countries would make their objections known to the national governments. The EU can open the door to Monsanto without accountability.
If you think the US government has too much integrity and righteousness to force the EU to serve Europeans and not Monsanto, read this: http://www.globalresearch.ca/gmos-produced-through-gene-editing-european-commission-fails-to-regulate-new-gmos-after-intense-us-lobbying/5521139
Then there is the NATO consideration. NATO is cover for Washington’s war crimes. Without this cover there likely would be arrest warrants for US officials and, if not, certainly much hostile publicity. The notion that Washington is bringing “freedom and democracy” when it destroys a country would no longer fly.
If the UK leaves the EU, other countries are likely to follow. The desertion could spread to NATO, in which case Washington’s hegemony over Europe and ability to threaten and destabilize Russia disappear. The neoconservatives cannot stand the thought.
Just as have the Americans and Europeans, the British have been lied to, deceived, and brainwashed for so long that it is surprising that such a large part of the population and political element are in favor of the UK leaving the EU. It shows that despite the propaganda, many of the British recognize that being absorbed by the EU is the same as being conquered by the Germans, a fate that the British fought two world wars to avoid.
The paid off British politicians want to do Washington’s bidding. Perhaps more need to be paid off, and the price is what Obama has gone to London to discover.
Obama receives short thrift from UK politicians. Brexiteer and UKIP leader Nigel Farage has said “President Obama should butt out.”
“This is an unwelcome interference from the most anti-British American president there has ever been. Mercifully, he won’t be in office for much longer,” Farage said.
US-born London Mayor Boris Johnson accusing Obama of “outrageous and exorbitant hypocrisy.”
“There is no country in the world that defends its own sovereignty with such hysterical vigilance as the United States of America,” he wrote in the Telegraph in March.
Outspoken Tory Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg also took a swipe at the president in parliament’s House magazine.
“I can’t think the British people will want to be told what to do by a rather unsuccessful American president who has had one of the least successful foreign policies in modern history,” he said.
In early March Conservative MP Steve Baker appeared to suggest Obama should look at American history before intervening in British politics.
“Whenever a US president intervenes in our constitutional future, I always reread the US Declaration of Independence,” he told the Independent.
“We will solve peacefully at the ballot box the problem for which their nation fought a bloody war of insurrection,” he added.
Peter Bone, another Conservative Brexiteer, told the paper Obama ought to “keep his comments, his views, to himself.”
Former Blair-era spin doctor Alistair Campbell warned on Wednesday that Britain leaving the EU would suit those who might not have the UK’s best interest at heart.
“[Russian President Vladimir] Putin probably. ISIS [Islamic State] definitely. And, depending what mood he is in, Donald Trump. That’s about it on the international scene,” Campbell told the Guardian.
For those unaware of the non-entity the is Alistair “Dodgey Dossier”. Campbell. He is one of the people, who along with Tony Blair, is responsible for British intervention in Iraq, that ultimately led to the chaos we see in the middle east. And the deaths of millions of people, including thousands of innocent children. If there is any justice left in this world. “Soft porn peddler” Campbell, will at some point in the future, appear in the Hague alongside Blair to account for his crimes against humanity.
