Yesterday, one of my favorite foreign news channels, probably France 24, reported that President Obama doesn't want Great Britain to leave the European Union (not the Euro, which it never joined), although Prime Minister Cameron is planning to hold a referendum on the question. The reason for Obama's opposition to something the Brits want is that it is through London that the US more or less controls Brussels.[tag]

But the more interesting question is why Cameron wants to leave the EU: according to this news source, in broad strokes, he believes Great Britain never should have had to leave India, which it used to run. Updated to 2015 that means he thinks it should have close economic ties with the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa) and the SCO (The Shanghai Cooperation Agreement, that includes most of the countries of Central and East Asia), which held a joint summit last week in a town in southern Russia that no one outside of Eurasia had ever heard of, Ufa. ("Uffa", with the accent on the 'u' is Italian for fed up".)
