Now this is an attention grabber. It leaves me, as a first impression, asking a simple question. Have we no true allies as we see the world any
longer? Is Britain 'Just another country' on par with every other nation in the world for treatment and solutions? It would seem so, at least to
The Obama administration has warned British officials that if the UK leaves Europe it will exclude itself from a US-EU trade and investment
partnership potentially worth hundreds of billions of pounds a year, and that it was very unlikely that Washington would make a separate deal with
The warning comes in the wake of David Cameron's visit to Washington, which was primarily intended as a joint promotion of the Transatlantic Trade
and Investment Partnership (TTIP) with Barack Obama, which the prime minister said could bring £10bn a year to the UK alone, but which was
overshadowed by a cabinet rebellion back in London.
It's a bad thing to consider as the US is anything but in a position of strength itself, at the moment. It may be we who need help in the foreseeable
future. If we have burned traditional 'Brother' nations, and Allies among Allies for profit and political advantage.....who will stand and give aid
to us if the time ever does come to ask?
US officials say that the White House is particularly perplexed because Britain played a key role in persuading Obama to stake significant
political capital on the ambitious transatlantic partnership. If it is successful it could be the biggest trade and investment deal in history,
encompassing half the world's GDP and a third of its trade.
Maybe I'm just getting cynical about politics all around, but is this looking out for the best interests of Britain, The United States or Obama's
personal agenda and legacy building? It's not often I'd have ever have thought about these things as separate let alone conflicting. I'm not sure
on this one. It's an odd thing to see happen?
