BBC: UK clashing with France on EU

David Cameron


The UK’s Prime Minister seems to want to modify the EU treaty in ways France does not support:

January 31, 2014

French President Francois Hollande has said the European Union cannot be expected to “follow the example” of one country after talks with David Cameron.

He described Mr Cameron’s demands for EU treaty changes by 2017, as a prelude to a referendum on the UK’s membership, as “not a priority for the time being”.

But Mr Cameron said he was committed to changing the UK’s links with the EU.

Mr Hollande said giving the British people a say on leaving the European Union was ‘not urgent’ and would do little to assist Mr Cameron’s push for reform.

The cross-Channel spat was being played out as Labour and Lib Dem peers in the House of Lords killed off a Bill which would legislate for Mr Cameron’s referendum.

David Cameron’s EU reform plans have been thrown into disarray after a bill to authorise a referendum on Britain’s membership by 2017 was killed off in the House of Lords by Labour and Liberal Democrat peers.

Hours after François Hollande threw a hand grenade into the prime minister’s EU plans, by warning that EU treaty change was not a priority, peers voted to end the committee stage of the bill, meaning it ran out of time.

The Conservative party accused Labour and the Lib Dems of acting as “enemies of democracy”. Conservative campaign headquarters tweeted: “Utter disgrace. Labour and Lib Dems have blocked our EU Referendum Bill … they’re determined to stop you have a say. Enemies of democracy.”

Britain keeps trying to tell the EU that it is not interested in loss of sovereignty and national interest. But since that is something that the EU is all about, many leaders there just assume that the UK leave.  While they would mainly prefer that the UK stay part of the European Union, the leadership of the EU wants that done according to the EU’s goals and intentions, not the UK’s.

Various leaders in the EU, including its outgoing president, have stated that the age of the individual nation state is over.  While the EU will make certain national concessions, it does not wish to go backwards on its goal of basically resurrecting the so-called “Holy Roman Empire.”

However, since most in the UK do not want this, this causes a problem for UK leaders like David Cameron.  He seems to want to be part of an EU that is mainly based upon trade and cooperation, not one in which Brussels has sovereignty.  If the EU does not budge, it may well be that the UK will vote to leave the EU in 2017 (or some other year, as Parliament seems to change on this from time to time, as it seems to have done again today).

Interestingly, and not that surprising, a while back the Obama Administration wants the UK to be part of the EU:

The Obama administration…publicly signalled its growing concern about a possible British exit from the EU, just days before David Cameron sets out plans for a referendum on the issue. US diplomats have privately warned for months that Mr Cameron risked putting Britain on a path to exit with his plan to renegotiate Britain’s EU membership terms and put the “new settlement” to a referendum.

The Obama Administration has taken several steps in the past to support the European Union and this is just one more. It is clear that those in the USA do not seem to consider the fact that the European King of the North will go against the strongest fortresses (the USA) and divide its lands for gain (Daniel 11:39).

The reality is that since the EU is all about trying to be a revival of the old Holy Roman Empire and that it certainly does intend to be a military empire. If not, I simply do not believe that Germany (who tried to recreate the empire via two world wars) would continue to fund the EU. Nor would the Europeans have developed the Galileo satellite system (EU Approves Galileo For Military Use and USA GPS and EU Galileo linking was expected), the Large Hadron Collider (CERN Makes Major Strides with Antimatter), decided to fund FAIR (another collider-type project, see Germany Approves FAIR Particle Accelerator Project), nor be involved in various other activities that it is now engaged in (e.g. Europe Looking to be a Major Player in Space).

Another financial and military system is starting to arise in Europe and the Anglo-descended nations will not like what will replace Anglo-Saxon capitalism or “Pax Americana” in that new world order.

But ultimately, Jesus will come and establish His kingdom with, amongst other things, a proper economic system. But until then, overall, Britain will see that it has less influence on the world scene than it did in its glory days or even as it did a decade or so ago.

Although the United Kingdom (and related Commonwealth nations) and the United States have dominated the world’s economy the past couple of centuries (as well as the military for over a 1/2 century), a shift is occurring and those in the Anglo-nations will not like what will be happening relatively soon.

And British attitudes towards the European Union, and the attitude of EU leaders toward the UK, will likely be a factor.
