    Presumably that means we'll also be at the back of the queue next time the US needs a lapdog to go to war with

    What does being 'American' mean ? Go to war every few years ?

    When Bush and Blair invaded Iraq, I dont think they realised that they set in motion a chain of events that would cause havoc around the world.

    Thank god for Obama we are not witnessing more such 'American' events.

    There is a reason Corbyn is now in charge of Labour party, Blair and his cronies will not make it for decades.
    Vote Corbyn ! Save this country !

All this will do is reinforce the anti-establishment feeling around the debate and irritate a few people that were otherwise on the fence.
    Yup, Camoron has dropped another bollock by begging Obama to say all that.

    From Guido Fawkes's article :

    Also worth bearing in mind that currently with no trade deal in place with the US, the UK is the biggest investment partner already and the US is the biggest investor in the UK ($324 billion). UK investment in the US last year was $282 billion. Over a million Americans work for British companies and over a million Britons are employed by American companies.
    We don't have to queue at all, let alone be at the back of one!

    Anyone who doubts Cameron asked Obama to make his speech should note the following comments on Guido's article :

    > Uses the words "Back of the Queue" instead of "line"? obviously been written by No10...

    Cameron has used that exact term of phrase before:

    http://www.heraldscotland.com/news/1...ue_for_the_EU/

    Obama on the other hand:

    https://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press...on-immigration

    He uses "back of line" here and in other speeches.

    I have tried to find one use of back of queue in others, nada.

    Yep downing street handlers prepared those remarks.
    Caught, bang to rights!

    See Boris Johnson opens his big idiotic mouth again, in the Sun no less:

    Boris Johnson has criticised the US president Barack Obama and suggested his attitude to Britain might be based on his “part-Kenyan” heritage and “ancestral dislike of the British empire”.
    “Mask slips again. Boris part-Kenyan Obama comment is yet another example of dog whistle racism from senior Tories. He should withdraw it,”
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    I think Bush Jr holds that title by a country mile.
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”
