Hypocrisy of Brexit backers over Obama

Published 26/04/2016

It is intriguing to note the negative reaction by those backing Brexit to Barack Obama’s proclamations on the advantages to the US of the UK staying in the EU.

Individuals such as Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage have been highly critical of the line being taken by the President. This is rather odd given that in the Scottish independence referendum many of those same individuals now pouring scorn on the President’s intervention welcomed it in that debate or said nothing.

It lacks credibility to be critical of this EU referendum intervention but to have stayed silent on the Scottish independence referendum.
