What is wrong with the UK Prime Minister? David Cameron can constantly be found in the press, always having a negative remark to share for the EU and always complaining how bad the membership in the EU is. Lately, during the Greek crisis, despite constantly approving, albeit indirectly, of the circus Syriza and Tsipras were accomplishing, he nevertheless had no intentions to help Greece, or anybody else for that matter, in any way. One of the latest actions was his refusal to accept any quota of immigrants, currently flooding the EU mainly from North Africa.
Harsh words from Brussels were the response for Mr. Cameron’s ignorance, one particular word catching the ear of the media, “Brexpulsion”. Contrary to the as of late popular phrase Grexit, Brexpulsion does not allow for an exit by choice, but rather by a collective kick out of the EU. Cameron, believing that he is still governing an Imperial Force, probably believes that his American friends will welcome him and his Tory cronies with open arms. If Mr. Cameron would only take a little time and have a look how similarly inclined countries with American friends fared in the recent past, like Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan and even Greece, then perhaps the happy Tory bunch would reconsider rattling the cage.
EU may not be a perfect conception, but contrary to the USA, the EU is still evolving, changing and trying to improve. UK is by no means a worldwide economic or military power that can best the US, China or even India for that matter, on its very own. One of the main reasons the EU was established, is to provide enough economic and military power to fend off imperialistic ambitions of any states outside of the Union. Risking something very functional for an uncertain and incalculable future is borderline lunatic behaviour. Only because Britain is unwilling to accept a quota of immigrants, their fair share?
The UK has never accepted the Euro as their currency, despite the Eurozone being quite eager to include the British into the EMU, most prominently because of the powerful GDP, but also because of the London Stock Exchange and what it would do to the value of the Euro and the Dollar as a consequence. Right now, the Eurozone is the second largest economy in the world, according to the IMF. The Eurozone would topple the USA, should the UK enter it, a step even the EU is reluctant to propose as mandatory, with respect to the incalculable adverse reaction of the USA to any such attempt. According to some military sources, the chances of the USA declaring war to the EU and UK in such a situation have been deemed as “likely”.
In any case, some have the UK and Cameron in particular in suspicion of playing both sides, whereby the EU apparently feel that the UK have lost its way a bit. The original idea must have been something akin to a double agent, ultimately working for the EU, but right now it seems that quadruple agent would be more appropriate, or rather the only viable answer. In the end, the UK does seem to function nicely within the EU, to mutual benefit. Most of the talk must be only PR, in order to strengthen the UK ties with the USA, allowing the UK to delve even deeper into the game. At some point the whole mess will have to get untangled and it will be interesting to see if Mr. Cameron was only a very smart player or a complete buffoon.
