Britain’s Cameron angers Europe in budget battle
Nov 23, 2012
British Prime Minister David Cameron was locked in a new Brussels battle Friday as angry EU diplomats claimed his “virulent” demands for austerity were blocking a deal on a new budget for the bloc.Nearly a year after he enraged his European counterparts by vetoing a pact to resolve the eurozone crisis, Cameron was winding them up again on Thursday by demanding cuts to the perks enjoyed by so-called ” eurocrats”…pessimistic European officials said Cameron was hamstrung by the domestic pressures he faces from anti-Europe members of his Conservative party…”If there is no deal on Friday it will deprive the British of the victory they had hoped for as far as securing their rebate,” the diplomat said on condition of anonymity.

The diplomat said the main obstacle was Cameron’s demand for cuts…http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/news/international-business/britains-cameron-angers-europe-in-budget-battle/articleshow/17333231.cms

David Cameron Demands EU Officials Take Pay Cut

Nov 23, 2012 6:59am EST

(Reuters) – Britain is calling for billions of euros in cuts to European Union officials’ pay and pensions, a move that has support in Britain and other northern European countries but risks blocking attempts to reach a long-term EU budget deal.

Prime Minister David Cameron, who wants a real-terms freeze in EU spending between 2014 and 2020, is pushing for the EU to cut its wage bill by 10 percent, push officials’ retirement age up to 68 from 63 and reduce generous pensions benefits…Cameron’s demand for more cuts, coupled with a pledge to protect Britain’s cherished annual EU rebate, has upset the European Commission, the EU’s executive, and some leaders as they struggle to narrow divisions and reach a deal.  http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/11/23/us-eu-budget-pay-idUSBRE8AM0BM20121123

Earlier this year, UK Prime Minister David Cameron emphasized how Britain will be separated from a eurozone superstate and that he would protect the UK from it (Telegraph: “Britain Must Go Its Separate Way” from a European Superstate).  Presumably, that is what he thinks that he is now doing.

Notice a prophecy that God inspired about Ephraim (Britain):

8 “Ephraim has mixed himself among the peoples; Ephraim is a cake unturned.
9 Aliens have devoured his strength, But he does not know it; Yes, gray hairs are here and there on him, Yet he does not know it.  (Hosea 7:8-9)

In addition to immigration and other policies, when Britain signed the Lisbon Treaty a few years back it has caused the United Kingdom to mix itself among the peoples of Europe and surrender much of its sovereignty (the others who signed the Lisbon Treaty also lost sovereignty, but at least most of them are expected to be satisfied with that).

The idea that the UK would be on the outs with the EU has long been taught by those of us in the Church of God.  Notice:

Interestingly, the Bible indicates that Britain will NOT be part of this final Roman system. Even now, there are misgivings among the British leadership and among the population at large about the approach to a complete union with Europe. (Meredith RC. Is the “Beast” Awakening? Tomorrow’s World Magazine, September-October, 2000, p. 8 )

The English-speaking nations will not prosper for long in connection with this system, however. In fact, they will ultimately be overpowered and destroyed by it militarily. Prior to military attack and occupation, devastating weather problems, combined with internal civil strife (“tumults in the midst” cf. Amos 3:9) will bring our nations to the point of internal collapse. (Ogywn J. The United States and Great Britain in Prophecy. LCG Booklet, Charlotte, NC).

Ephraim (modern Great Britain) will not be part of the “Beast” power, so we can expect some significant change that will push the British out of the EU. (Davis. D. Ireland says “No!” to EU power grab. LCG Commentary, July, 1 2008)

Perhaps it should be mentioned that the general position within the Churches of God is that Britain will not remain in the EU and will pull out at some point. (Thiel B. Tony Blair a Catholic EU Leader? Church of God News, June 26, 2007. http://www.cogwriter.com/news/prophecy/tony-blair-a-catholic-eu-leader/)

It should be understood that ultimately, Britain will NOT thrive as part of the EU but will be taken over by the final European Beast power–yet its former Prime Minister is promoting something that will not help the peoples of the UK. (Thiel B. Tony Blair Calls for a Strong, Elected, EU President Church of God News, June 9, 2007. http://www.cogwriter.com/news/prophecy/tony-blair-calls-for-a-strong-elected-eu-president/)

Bible prophecy clearly shows that Britain will not be one of the TEN NATIONS comprising the final United States of Europe (McNair R. A Strong United Europe. Tomorrow’s World, February 1970, p. 17).

As cries for the euro to become the world currency increase, the European Central Bank just declared that Britain is “unfit” to enter the Eurozone because of its current financial crisis (Telegraph, January 8, 2009). The stage is being set for a strong nation or group of nations to take the world stage in an attempt to lead the world into a new era of apparent peace and relative prosperity (Revelation 13:1-7, 18:9-15). (World Ahead Weekly Update. Living Church of God, January 22, 2009)

The UK will ultimately find that the EU is a beast that will do them in.  (Thiel B. UK Slammed for EU Stance and its Army is at a Historical Low.  Church of God News, July 9, 2012.  http://www.cogwriter.com/news/prophecy/uk-slammed-for-eu-stance-and-its-army-is-at-a-historical-low/)

Britain is not so linked to continental Europe that it will do well in a union with those there.  In the long run, the rising European Beast power will do Britain in.  The reality is that the EU simply will not work out well for the UK.
