Barack Obama plans intervention in Britain’s EU referendum

Barack Obama is planning to make “a big, public reach-out” to persuade British voters to stay inside the European Union, the chair of the US Senate foreign relations committee has revealed.

The plan emerged amid fears in Washington that the UK’s EU referendum is a dangerous gamble that could unravel with disastrous consequences for the entire continent.

His “reach out” is likely to focus on the need for the EU to stick together to combat the migration crisis and the growing threat of Russian aggression in the Baltics, Ukraine and Middle East.


I see this as a huge boost to the Exit side.  h/t Minicapt

    Yes, bring it on. Cameron isn’t quite holier-than-thou and preachy enough.

    • What a dynamic duo

      • David Murrell

        Fur, you are probably right that Obama’s intervention will hurt the pro-EU side. British voters will resend elitist, outside intervrnion. And Obama is too arrogant to realize that.

      I once dreamed that Cameron was kidnapped, castrated by his kidnappers, and a photo of him with his balls hanging from his earlobes like jewelry was posted online along with the ransom demands. In the end, nobody wanted him back even though everyone agreed that the kidnappers had “finally fixed him”. I awoke with a beaming smile on my face that day……

      The less said about “Canada’s current shame” the better.

      You should be ashamed of yourself for raising the name of Canada’s most embarrassing Canadian just because he happens to sit in the PMO.

      • BradThomas

        Unfortunately, the very fact that he is sitting there says something about Canada, something that we should all be ashamed of: that we have several million citizens who support his “policies” and who share his (myopic) worldview.

        • Justin St.Denis

          I share Canada’s shame with you and millions of others. As for those “persons” who voted for this empty bag of wind and fart-gas, I feel nothing but despair and pity for them……

    Europe could stand up to Russia and the Muslim invasion better without the EU, which has proven to be a divisive force.

    • Justin St.Denis

      EU has come to stand for “EUNUCHS UNITED”.

  • Etobicoke_Gladiator

    I can’t wait until this Muslim is out of politics.

    • David Murrell

      It s going to be a long wait.

  • Maggat

    The consequences re disastrous even if Britain stays in the EU

  • Ed

    Brits will listen, because he’s one of them? Get Robert Mugabe to throw in a few words and the EU project is assured!

  • John

    Exiting the EU would give the UK much more choice and control over immigration.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Because the EU is, after all, the realization of Hitler’s Nazi vision…

  • lgeubank

    There is just NO END to his douche-baggery. He’s an epic grifter / con-man who will only be satisfied when he’s king of the world.

  • Hard Little Machine

    So is he going to ship guns to the Muslims there?

    • Justin St.Denis

      Probably. Some chemical weapons as well, I imagine.

  • Justin St.Denis

    Progressives and conservatives do share one perspective – Barack Obama is everybody’s least favorite secret Islamist. It’s just that nobody dares say it out loud..
