Britain will be weaker without EU, says USA

Source: UK Daily Telegraph

The Obama administration has expressed concern at what US officials see as Britain's slide towards the European exit door.

Well that's an incentive to renegotiate terms with the EU if ever there was one.

2. Yeah, America has an influence all right.

A bad influence! Be it either: Militarily, Economically or Culturally.

3. America's Influence Is: "How NOT to do things"

How NOT to provide healthcare services to your population.

How NOT to control gun violence.

How NOT to educate your children.

How NOT to provide for your elderly.

How NOT to protection for workers.
