London’s Boris Johnson calls Barack Obama hypocritical on Brexit position

London Mayor Boris Johnson


London’s Mayor Johnson made some statements today:

April 16, 2016

Boris Johnson has accused US President Barack Obama of “hypocrisy” over his support for the UK remaining in the EU.

The London mayor, who backs EU exit, told the BBC the Americans “wouldn’t dream of sharing [their] sovereignty” as the UK had done.

The US president is expected to repeat his support for Britain’s EU membership when he visits the UK next week. …

“I don’t know what he is going to say but, if that is the American argument then it is nakedly hypocritical. The Americans would never dream of it,” he told the BBC. …

“I just find it absolutely bizarre that we are being lectured by the Americans about giving up our sovereignty and giving up control when the Americans won’t even sign up to the international convention on the law of the seas, let alone the International Criminal Court.”

Mr Johnson also reiterated his view that Mr Cameron should stay on as prime minister even if voters backed leaving.

At a rally for the Leave campaign in Newcastle on Saturday, Mr Johnson said the referendum was “a massive opportunity to… burst out of the shackles of Brussels”.

The London mayor was applauded when he spoke of the EU being “deeply anti-democratic” and “sometimes borderline corrupt” in how it allocated its budget.

And he said Britain would “thrive and flourish as never before” if it left the EU and agreed its own free trade deals.

We now are seeing a real battle heating up in the UK related to a possible Brexit (also called a Brixit). Brexit is short for BRitish EXIT and Brixit is short for BRItish exIT from the European Union.

Prime Minister Cameron announced that the vote on staying or leaving the EU would take place on June 23, 2016.

Earlier, UK Prime Minister David Cameron came back with a deal he negotiated with leaders of the EU. Most in the UK did not find that enough to convince them to want to stay in the EU (see Most in the UK not convinced it should remain in the EU). So, David Cameron went back, and got a ‘better’ deal, granting the UK ‘special status’ within the EU (watch Will the UK’s ‘special status’ with the EU last?). He did this in the hopes that more in the UK would vote to remain in the EU.

Obviously, people like Boris Johnson are not convinced that this is a good deal and that the UK should leave the EU.

The official position of the USA is that it would prefer for the UK to remain in the EU.

Is that a bit hypocritical of the USA as Boris Johnson has stated?


Interestingly, the Bible warns that punishment will come against “an hypocritical” nation from the heart of Europe:

5 O Assyrian, the rod of mine anger, and the staff in their hand is mine indignation.

6 I will send him against an hypocritical nation, and against the people of my wrath will I give him a charge, to take the spoil, and to take the prey, and to tread them down like the mire of the streets.

7 Howbeit he meaneth not so, neither doth his heart think so; but it is in his heart to destroy and cut off nations not a few. (Isaiah 10:5-7, KJV)

Now, do I think that Barack Obama is himself hypocritical on this matter?

Well, based on Boris Johnson’s statements, no.

I believe that Barack Obama personally is willing to turn over, or otherwise reduce, USA sovereignty. International confederations that reduce national sovereignty are not opposed to by Barack Obama–to the contrary, Barack Obama has encouraged the USA to take steps that reduce its national sovereignty.

Yet, I do agree with the basic position of Boris Johnson that this is not the view of many Americans.

The prevailing view in the USA is that it should not have to put up with international restrictions and confederations if it does not want to.

We will see if those in the UK will vote to extract itself from an international confederation which ultimately will eliminate most national sovereignty (cf. Revelation 17:12-13).
