Whilst it’s up to the British people to decide, it’s the responsibility of people like Obama to share the risks as they see them.

The jittery Cameron/Osborne partnership will probably need some support until the referendum.

One response

  1. President Obama is entitled to his views as we all are as free people in both the UK and the US.

    His views on the EU match those of previous American Presidents and are concerned with the defence of the USA.

    In this post from Dr Alf via the Guardian, President Obama will present the Brexit risks as he sees them.

    However, he will not state his real reason for coming to the UK which is to try and get Europe as a whole to “burden share”(pay a lot more money), towards the cost of European defence and the missile shield and to expedite EU enlargement right up to the Russian border via the inclusion of Turkey and the Ukraine as a precursor to TTIP.

    Any move to extend the EU right up to the Russian border risks triggering World War 3 but this particular risk will not be made explicit by this patrician lame duck President who will fade into obscurity and make a fortune writing books and giving speeches in between playing golf.

    The plan for the UK Tri Forces was to integrate it with those of Europe’s and then turn all the EU’s forces into a plug and play component of US military power.

    The risk there is that the EU could be dragged into a war not of its making but which might suit US defence policy and global ambitions. The UK on its own would be able to make its own alliances and operate a different “playbook”, hence the Obama visit to persuade the doubters to change their views and remain in the EU.
