Surely he is not going to claim to be a friend of the United Kingdom?















According to the Guardian the American President is planning to interfere in British affairs (article by Patirick Wintour):  http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2016/feb/12/barack-obama-plans-eu-referendum-intervention

It will be interesting to see how Barack Obama does this.

Surely he is not going to claim to be a friend of the United Kingdom?

This is Barack Obama who in his autobiographical Dreams From My Father accused the British of atrocities during counter-terrorist operations in Kenya here

This is Barack Obama who maliciously accused "British Petroleum" of polluting the Gulf of Mexico when the company he was referring to had been known as BP for years, was as much American-owned as it was British-owned, and when almost everyone involved in the pollution fiasco was American not British.

This is Barack Obama whose first action on becoming American President was to send back to London the bust of Winston Churchill that had been displayed in the White House Oval Office.  It is not clear whether he spat on it before it was sent back.  But certainly it was sent back in a symbolic act that was unmistakable.

No, Barack Obama cannot claim to be a friend of the United Kingdom.

And any attempt to interfere in our internal affairs needs to be robustly rebuffed.

Indeed, let me start the rebuffing now by saying:  fuck off Obama, you are no friend of ours.
