You all should totally ignore him. Half our country does.
We're a divided country too. Half of us want out of Europe and half want to stay in. Obama's intervention has ruffled feathers.
I'd say he's astonishingly tone deaf about such things, but it's not that. He's just so amazingly narcissistic that it never occurs to him that other people might not require his guidance and opinions.
It's embarrassing. Like being led by a self-centered teen.
In this instance it may well be that David Cameron put him up to it.
Most national leaders are embarrassing. I find it hard to think of any that aren't.
There is something to that. :,
Maybe she just thinks he's a nice guy and fun to hang out with? He seems that way to me.
If she'd merely wanted entertaining she could have had Stephen Fry.
Or Peter Kay
Or Caitin Moran...
As though Farage, Bojo, Gove and co aren't being given enough ammunition.........
I'll be glad when it's all over.
If he'd ordered his troops to torch Parliament and the palace, we could almost call it even.
He shills for the people who elected him as well, so for us it's something of a wash.
What a long time to hold a grudge...:)
Mind you, the Palace of Westminster and Buckingham Palace are hideous buildings and if they were to disappear overnight I wouldn't be desperately sorry...
I don't see how we can prevent Obama having an opinion and expressing it in public. I understand that Putin and ISIS want us to leave, if that's any comfort.
It's considered polite for visiting foreign statesmen to keep their noses out of the domestic affairs of the host nation.
Does Isis really want us out? I don't see why they would give a damn.
According to The News Quiz they do, though they did wonder how anyone knew, and who had gone canvassing their opinion.
If it's any comfort, Chez Blanchard is of the opinion that we are witnessing the waning days of the American Empire. Seen through that lens, it's one has-been telling another has-been what to do.
I think you're right. Empires have a limited shelf life. There's no reason why yours should last any longer than ours.
" now we get bossed " finally people understand it.
Yes, it's no fun being ruled by foreigners- even if their rule is comparatively benign.
