Why Washington Fears Britain Quitting EU

The countdown begins this week for the momentous question facing Britain: whether to exit the European Union – the so-called Brexit. While the issue seems to be primarily one for British national interests, lurking in the background is a crucial geopolitical concern for the United States. The outcome of the British referendum on Europe could severely undermine Washington’s global hegemonic ambitions and in particular its adversarial agenda towards Russia...

American and British Attitudes to Russia and Its President

The boastfulness of Britain’s media about having a citizen launched into space last month would be quite funny if it wasn’t so pathetically nationalistic. Unfortunately, the British ‘stiff upper lip’ of understatement and dignity has vanished, and in this instance of overexcited media vulgarity there were also spiteful gibes at Russia. The Daily Telegraph newspaper, once a publication of distinction but now a sad shadow of its former self, carried the headline that the British astronaut was preparing «for blast off to space amid fears over creaking 50 year-old Russian rocket capsule»...

Class, War And David Cameron. “Keep our Country Safe,… Military Action against ISIS”

British Prime Minister David Cameron has said it is time for Britain to join air strikes against Islamic State in Syria (ISIS). After the killing of 130 people in Paris, he feels the tide has now turned in favour of military action against ISIS. Cameron has told the British public that such action is vital to protect Britain from similar attacks.

To Win Battle Without Losing War

The talks between Great Britain and the European Union on the change of the conditions of the UK EU membership have come to the final phase. David Cameron sent an official letter to the President of the European Council setting out the areas where he is seeking reforms...

Start of Anglo-Sino Golden Age

This week has been momentous in Anglo-Sino relations. The British Government has rolled out the red carpet for the visiting President of the People’s Republic of China, Mr. Xi Jinping. Many of Britain’s traditional Western allies have expressed «bafflement» at this warm embrace of Beijing – a rapprochement of sorts – after the deep freeze UK-China relations were placed in by the Chinese Government after British Prime Minister David Cameron unwisely met with the Tibetan Buddhist spiritual leader, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, in 2012...

Slave Descendant? Don’t Call Me Dave!

British Prime Minister David Cameron had some stiff upper-lip advice for Jamaicans while on an official visit this week to the Caribbean state. He was urged to make a formal apology for Britain’s historic role in the transatlantic slave trade and to consider monetary reparations for the descendants of African slaves, who account for the vast majority of Jamaica’s population...

Let’s Bomb Libya Again

The British prime minister, David Cameron, places great emphasis on how he is regarded by the public at home and internationally. His personal promotion machine is extensive and highly-paid and his staff feed the media diligently with what they imagine to be positive slants on his character and actions (and with carefully selected photographs of his pretty wife). They provide advance copies of his speeches to favoured journalists with the annoying consequence that news broadcasts rarely report what the prime minister has just said on a topic. They are futuristic and use the infuriating phrase «the prime minister will say today that» he will propose something or other.

Europe Going Through Changes Right in Front of Our Eyes

The Greek crisis provided an impetus to the ongoing centrifugal process inside the European Union. A strong secessionist sentiment is there. National interests happen to be more important than the values of «United Europe»… Looks like Europe is in for a wave of referendums with unpredictable results. Besides Great Britain, Austria and Finland, Euroscepticism is on the rise in many other EU members as well...

British Royal Nazi Salute – a Sign of the Times

The British royal family is up in arms – excuse the pun – over old video footage that shows the young Queen Elizabeth giving a Heil Hitler salute. A photograph published on its front page by British tabloid newspaper The Sun.html has caused a storm of controversy, with the British monarchy denouncing it as an invasion of privacy. But the real significance is that the image shows how Western so-called democracies were – and still are – so close to embracing fascism...

UK Referendum on EU Membership: Blackmail or End of United Europe?

British MPs have approved the EU Referendum Bill. No doubt, Prime Minister David Cameron and the ruling Conservative Party ran a great risk putting the issue to vote. Polls say nothing threatens the UK’s European membership as the majority of British voters support it. But it’s not just an in-out vote (if it were the case, there would be no need to hold the referendum). A huge pile of unsolved problems (or even unsolvable ones) dividing Brussels and London makes the choice much more complicated...
