  • Cameron ‘ultimately responsible’ for Libya collapse and the rise of Isis, Commons report concludes

    09/17/2016 12:32:08 AM PDT · by Mr. Mojo · 11 replies
    The bloody collapse of Libya – which triggered a refugee crisis and aided the rise of Isis – is blamed today on David Cameron's blunders when he intervened to overthrow Colonel Gaddafi. A damning report by MPs condemns the 2011 military campaign for lacking both “accurate intelligence” and a coherent strategy for the aftermath of removing the dictator. The disastrous results were “political and economic collapse”, tribal warfare, the refugee crisis, widespread human rights abuses and the rise of Islamic State (IS) in North Africa, fuelled by weapons abandoned by the Gaddafi regime. The Foreign Affairs Select Committee concludes: “Through...
  • Exiting British PM David Cameron: 'I Was the Future Once'

    AP via CNS News ^ | July 13, 2016 | 4:42 PM EDT | (Jill Lawless and Danica Kirka)
    Theresa May entered No. 10 Downing St. on Wednesday as Britain’s new prime minister, following a bittersweet exit by David Cameron that was tinged with humor and regret. “I was the future once,” Cameron quipped as he left office. But that future now belongs to May, and it involves instability, uncertainty and tough wrangling over Britain’s departure from the European Union. […] May promised to fight for social justice in a speech that addressed “hard-working families” who have struggled during the years of instability since the 2008 financial crisis. Many of those people, fed up with remote politicians and bureaucrats,...

  • Andrea Leadsom quits Conservative leadership race (Theresa May will be next UK PM)

    BBC ^ | 11 July 2016
    Andrea Leadsom has pulled out of the contest to become the next Conservative Party leader and UK PM - with Theresa May now set to succeed David Cameron. Mrs Leadsom said she did not believe she had sufficient support to lead a "strong and stable government". She also said a nine-week leadership campaign at such a "critical time" for the UK would be "highly undesirable". The energy minister said Mrs May was "ideally placed" to implement Brexit, and wished her the "greatest success". A source close to the energy minister told BBC political editor Laura Kuenssberg "the abuse has been...

    Wishful thinking, or a legitimate perspective on demonstrations of buyer’s remorse in the UK? It’s no secret, after all, that the Obama administration opposed the “Brexit” referendum that passed last week, which makes John Kerry’s skepticism about its actual implementation a bit self-serving. That doesn’t necessarily make him incorrect, however: The US secretary of state has raised doubts about whether Brexit will ever happen, suggesting most leave campaigners do not truly believe in Britain’s divorce from the EU and do not know how to achieve it. Claiming there were a number of ways in which Thursday’s vote could be “walked...

    Overnight, the passage of a U.K. “Brexit” referendum that will separate Great Britain from the European Union triggered a sharp decline of the British pound, Prime Minister David Cameron’s resignation, and congratulatory remarks from presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump. British and American celebrities alike reacted to the upheaval—which could transform Europe for generations—with a mixture of shock and disappointment.

    LONDON — British voters didn’t just shock the world and the financial markets by voting to leave the European Union hours ago: They also ignored President Barack Obama, handed Hillary Clinton a potential economic burden and injected new energy into the populist currents roiling politics on both sides of the Atlantic. The surprise 52 percent - 48 percent result in favor of leaving the European Union — which British networks projected just before 5 a.m. local time — came after a tense night of vote-counting throughout the United Kingdom. British Prime Minister David Cameron later announced he's resigning, citing a...

    Voters in France, Italy and the Netherlands are demanding their own votes on European Union membership and the euro, as the continent faces a “contagion” of referendums. EU leaders fear a string of copycat polls could tear the organisation apart, as leaders come under pressure to emulate David Cameron and hold votes. It came as German business leaders handed a considerable boost to the Leave campaign by saying it would be “very, very foolish” to deny the UK a free trade deal after Brexit. Markus Kerber, the head of the BDI, which represents German industry, said that 1970s-style trade barriers...

    Quote from CameronI was absolutely clear [in the referendum] about my belief that Britain is stronger, safer and better off inside the European Union. And I made clear the referendum was about this and this alone, not the future of any single politician, including myself. But the British people have made a very clear decision to take a different path and as such I think the country requires fresh leadership to take it in this direction. I will do everthing I can as prime minister to steady the ship over the coming weeks and months. But I do not think...

    BRUSSELS: EU chiefs on Friday told Britain to start negotiations to quit the bloc "as soon as possible", after outgoing Prime Minister David Cameron said he would leave the negotiations to his successor. "We now expect the United Kingdom government to give effect to this decision of the British people as soon as possible, however painful that process may be," said a joint statement after Britons voted for a Brexit . "Any delay would unnecessarily prolong uncertainty." The statement was issued by EU president Donald Tusk, European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker, EU Parliament leader Martin Schulz and Dutch premier Mark...

"There can be no doubt about the result." Cameron gave no timetable for his departure, but said that he wanted a new leader to be in place by October when his Conservative Party holds its annual conference. Boris Johnson, a former London mayor who campaigned for the UK's departure from the EU, is tipped by bookmakers as Cameron's likely successor. Johnson, who was greeted by a booing crowd...

    Nigel Farage has told Sky News it "looks like Remain will edge it" as votes are counted in the EU referendum. The UKIP leader said it had been an "extraordinary" campaign and it looked like turnout had been "exceptionally high". He also insisted UKIP were "going nowhere" and predicted the party would "continue to grow stronger in the future". Although a long time campaigner for the UK to split from Brussels, Mr Farage is not the official leader of the Leave camp.
