OBAMA AND THE UK ELECTION
Barack Obama was unimpressed when, in 2008, he met David Cameron, the leader of the UK's Conservative Party.
Obama commented: "What a lightweight!" (Obama's view of Cameron: a lightweight, claims magazine.)
"David Cameron failed to secure an audience with Obama at the White House." (Shrunken ambitions)
Is there a plot, by the powers that be, to have the UK run by a national government, led by someone like the Liberal Democrat's Nick Clegg, or the Labour party's David Miliband, who is Jewish?
Nick Clegg - Is A Fraud: Why He's Still One of Them.
The BBC seems to have been going out of its way to promote Nick Clegg's Liberal Democrat Party and thus bring about some kind of coalition or national government.
According to journalist Martin Walker, Nick Clegg is a "passionate internationalist who believes in global government." (The US and the UK?)
Clegg, in a speech at Chatham House, said: "Globalization requires us to formulate a system of supranational governance capable of controlling forces which escape the limitations of the nation state." (The US and the UK: A Special Relationship?)
It was Nick Clegg who said: "After the economic 9/11, we will face a new world order…"
Scottish National Party.
On 27 April 2010, the Financial Times reported that "David Cameron’s campaign team is exploring the possibility of a deal with ... Scottish and Welsh nationalist MPs in the event of a hung parliament, in an attempt to avoid giving in to Liberal Democrat demands for electoral reform." (Tories eye pact with smaller parties)
The Northern Ireland unionists, the Scottish National party and Wales's Plaid Cymru might do a deal with Cameron if such a deal would "protect their parts of the UK from the worst effects of any spending cuts."
Cameron's team want to avoid a deal with Nick Clegg’s Liberal Democrats, who say that electoral reform would be the price of any post-election pact.
The Scottish and Welsh nationalists want to bring the troops home from Afghanistan, want to scrap Trident, and want to avoid the London funding to Scotland and Wales being cut by 10%.
A Labour - Liberal Democrat alliance, or a national government, would have no difficulty in cutting funding to Scotland and Wales by 10%.
The best hope for Scotland and Wales is a big vote for the nationalists.
But the nationalists are being got at by the media.
