BREXIT is a US manipulation. This became as clear as daylight when Donald Trump held up the carrot of a “phenomenal” trade deal for Britain on his recent state visit to the island nation.
The US president more or less nominating BREXITERS Boris Johnson or Nigel Farage as his preferred choice of the future prime ministers of the UK was further contempt for the country on whose once Empire “the sun never set”.
On this occasion Trump made a titanic show of Britain’s special and age old relationship with Britain as he stood beside Her Majesty the Queen at the end of a state banquet at Buckingham Palace in London.
The EU had seen all of this coming and released a video earlier indicating their drawing closer to Russia (and China) beyond trade ties with Iran and, towards a new mode of trade payments with these and the other US sanctioned countries.
EU spokesperson, Federica Mogherini was explicit on all of this at the UNGA meeting and made it known that the EU will be looking to its own interests beginning with a 4000 kilometer Russian gas pipeline to Europe.
The EU’s unwillingness to see Russia as an enemy then puts the US’s’ carefully crafted alliances, like NATO, at risk. More so with China rushing to Russia’s side on the sanctions regime the US has imposed on Russia and trade tariffs on itself.
For the greater worth of all this, Trump’s state visit to the UK seemed like a demand for the British to accept the House of Trump on an equal footing to the House of Windsor, while the World War 11’s D-Day was being commemorated.
The burning question now is whether the UK will accept a secondary role in the US’s ‘Great Game, or be able to persuade Trump not to pursue enmity with Iran (read Russia and China), which the EU has shown it certainly wants no part of.
