Nah, I'm afraid Obama is full of it on this occasion, just a large dose of orchestrated propaganda. And I am voting in (as it's the least worst option)!

Lol, his words exemplify the 'special relationship' ...between him and his mates at least.
Whenever Obama and Cameron become unlikely bedfellows I'd vote against them.

Do we really want us big cooperation sucking the uk economy for all its got anyway.. not paying its taxes and damaging small uk businesses anyway. Google for example does all of those things even goes around punishing smaller sites in order them to force them into buying adwords.
so more reasons to stay out the eu and let our country grow powerful and not exploited.

Let see...Obama insults Israel, the UK, our allies and Christians. But Obama makes "nice" with the Islamic Brotherhood, Iran, Islam, etc. Enemy of the people...traitor to the country.

Obama is near the end of his reign. He might aught to ease out of politics and ease into product support, and things he can make money on after he is moved out of the White house. He can shift his support to certain products he is likely familiar with, such as golf clubs, Rice-a-roni, vacation places, and health products, such as viscene, and preparation H. Mr Obama is a real nice fellow, and would be a great pitchman for many products. He could give speeches all over the middle east. He coud become an Imam for a Holy Muslim place of worship. He has a great life ahead of him, and so much oppurtunity. He is after all, the Nobel peace prize winner, and should be commended for his good works through out the world

I do find it rich for him to come here and spout off at (his) thoughts that we should remain
a part of the European union of soviet socialist former republics.

when the united states and its people would not tolerate anything remotely close to the same
levels of union and loss of power and sovereignty double standards much!

Mr obama and his globalist chums can take their opinions and fox oscar thankyou.

i will be voting out.

Now you see what we put up with. He is always telling us what is good for us while not having a clue as to how we live.. I watched part of his speech and I don't blame you one bit for being pi##ed. He was basically talking down to you by while telling you he was giving you his opinion. Or so he said it was his opinion. Didn't really sound like an opinion, sounded like he was scolding you peeps. I am father Obama here me roar.

This is what we get by being close to Europe.

German party leader arrested just for quoting a line from the anti-Erdogan poem. A comedian has also been charged and faces criminal prosecution for criticising Erdogan.

German citizens arrested for criticising Erdogan

As George Carlin once said 'It's a big club and you ain't in it'. Merkel and Erdogan are and now you can;t even criticise the club without getting arrested. It will happen in the UK too. Once that STAY vote comes in the EU oppression will ramp up and up. We're on the verge of holding out our wrists for the handcuffs.

Here is Boris Johnsons's take on Obama's visit


Barack Obama is entitled to his view and he is an honoured guest, but it is ridiculous to warn that the UK will be at the back of the queue for a free trade deal. The UK has never been able to do a free trade deal with the US in the last 43 years – because we are in the EU! Any negotiations are entirely in the hands of the European Commission and only 3.6 per cent of commission officials actually come from this country. Negotiations are held up by absurd problems like the French restrictions on Hollywood movies or Greek hostility to American feta cheese. No one in the last 48 hours has come close to answering my point – it is very weird that the US should be telling the UK to do something they would not dream of doing themselves in a million years. We can be better allies of America if we recapture control of our democracy and our borders and £350 million a week, much of which could be spent on this country's real priorities, such as health. It's time to take back control, folks. The crucial thing that Churchill stood for, and that America stands for today, is representative democracy. The problem with the EU is that nobody knows who is in charge and nobody knows who is making these decisions.


That last sentence is chilling. Read it and take it in:

Perhaps we should all remember that the elite are nearly all members of old European royalty or those who have climbed or bribed themselves into it. If the UK leaves that failing block it will break up their Empire. It will also take out one of their favourite countries and they can see their investments and a possible bolt-hole closing to them.

The difference is that our Prime Minsiter or other high level arsewi...ahem..politicians, don't mosey on over to you lot and then give speeches about who to vote for or how you should be voting...your president has.

Not the same thing at all when a head of state does it versus the Man or Woman in the street.

I don't think much of him interfering like this. It's no one's business but ours.


When you think of how the American political machine usually deals with foreign policy it doesn't agree with around the world, just count yourself fortunate it's just a half-arsed speech, and your not chewing on a drone right now.

In an interview given to the BBC Obama has said a trade deal with the UK could take 10 years to negotiate.



"It could be five years from now, 10 years from now before we were able to actually get something done."




"The UK would not be able to negotiate something with the United States faster than the EU. "We wouldn't abandon our efforts to negotiate a trade deal with our largest trading partner, the European market."
www.bbc.co.uk...



A : That cuts both ways.
B : You've shown over the years that what comes out of your mouth aint necessarily what happens in the real world.

Time for Camerons gunslinger to go home me thinks , we aint scared of no hollow threats.

In the twilight months of what has been widely regarded as a fairly disappointing stint as President of the USA, It's sad that Obama has been reduced to a disappointing hatchetman for the Tory propaganda machine.

When you consider a deal with Australia was recently ratified after 10 months...It stinks of bs

And then there's the little matter of American listening posts, military bases and so on that could and probably would be used as a lever with the US should the unlikely need arise...apart from the half a trillion per year in trade with the UK at stake.

Hot air as per.
