Obama Sticks His Nose In
There is nothing more nauseating than an American President who has shown great incompetence on foreign affairs sticking his nose in and telling the US’s allies what to do. And yet that is exactly what President Obama has decided to do today by calling for Britain to remain in the EU. Thank God he will be gone next year …
President Obama said in an interview with the BBC that “having the United Kingdom in the European Union gives us much greater confidence about the strength of the transatlantic union.” This tells us two things about the ‘leader of the free world’. Firstly, he barely cares for the ‘special relationship’ because it seems reliant on the UK being a member of the EU and not centuries of co-operation and history. Secondly, he is very lazy on foreign policy because he sees the UK as only useful in speaking to all the countries of Europe so he doesn’t have to. There isn’t much else he could have said to insult this country even more …
Newly elected Conservative backbench MP Tom Pursglove has slammed President Obama for his arrogance. The MP for Corby said that EU membership was “a matter for the British people … It isn’t for anyone else to tell Britain what they are going to do.” I hope the PM has a stern telephone conversation with the American President tonight …

FROM THE ARCHIVES
On this day, 24th July, in 1959 Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev and Vice President Richard Nixon got involved in the infamous ‘kitchen debate.’ The event was filmed. This ‘debate’ involved both men wandering around a technology festival in the US and Khrushchev arrogantly declaring that the USSR will have the same technology of the US in a few years. Capitalism will bury you …
