President Obama’s advice is arrogant and unwanted. Britain needs to be a truly independent country, not just from the EU but from the USA as well. We need to start running our own country for our own benefit, writes UKIP MEP Gerard Batten.
•President Obama has said that he wants Britain to stay in the European Union; saying it was in America’s interests for us to do so.
Yes that is the point, it may be in the USA’s interests but it is not in ours. Remember when Henry Kissinger said, “when I want to speak to Europe, who do I call?”
America wants Britain to stay in the EU because it only wants to deal with one centralised political state, not have the inconvenience of dealing with different democratic governments.
Obama and the US Government couldn’t care less about our national interests or democratic rights. They just want an easy life.
This is a new twist in an old story. Very few people are aware that in the 1975 referendum on continued EU membership the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) pumped money into the ‘Yes’ campaign. It is estimated that the Yes campaign had up to twenty times more money than the No campaign; as well as having the BBC and other organs of the media campaigning for a Yes vote.
The CIA’s involvement is a matter of historical fact and the relevant documents are filed in Georgetown University. A British academic, Dr Richard J. Aldrich of Nottingham University wrote a book on this entitled, The Hidden Hand, published by John Murray 2001.
We don’t have a ‘special relationship’ with the EU, even if we ever did. We have a servile relationship. President Obama’s advice is arrogant and unwanted. Just like his previous advice that Turkey should join the EU. Let Turkey become the 51st US state instead.
Britain needs to be a truly independent country, not just from the EU but from the USA as well. We need to start running our own country for our own benefit.
We know that the British political establishment has got the wind-up over UKIP’s rise in the polls and the increasing unpopularity of the EU with the British people. Now it seems the Americans are concerned too. Good! It means UKIP is being more and more effective
