Cameron says UK exit could put peace at risk
Peace in Europe could be at risk if Britain votes to leave the European Union, David Cameron has warned.
The UK has regretted “turning its back” on Europe in the past, the PM said, arguing the EU had “helped reconcile” countries and maintain peace.
Was leaving the union a “risk worth taking”, Mr Cameron asked.
But ex-London mayor Boris Johnson hit back, saying the EU’s “anti-democratic tendencies” were “a force for instability and alienation”.
Mr Johnson also sparked criticism when he suggested the conflict in Ukraine was an example of “EU foreign policy-making on the hoof”.
Former Swedish prime minister Carl Bildt, as well as the official Remain campaign, branded him an “apologist for Putin”.
Mr Johnson called for an apology, saying the comments were “absolutely contemptible” and that he had repeatedly condemned Russia’s actions in Ukraine.
Later on Monday, Mr Cameron’s security warning was bolstered by five former secretary generals of the West’s military alliance Nato – Lord Peter Carrington, Javier Solana, Lord George Robertson, Jaap De Hoop Scheffer and Anders Fogh Rasmussen.
In an open letter to the Daily Telegraph, they said it would be “very troubling” if the UK ended its membership of the EU.
“While the decision is one for the British people, Brexit would undoubtedly lead to a loss of British influence, undermine Nato and give succour to the West’s enemies just when we need to stand shoulder to shoulder across the Euro-Atlantic community against common threats, including on our doorstep,” they said.
and when all else fails you play the peace card..and the usual favorite enemies get rolled out again..cameron is a stooge..
