Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has made clear to UK Conservatives American dismay that Tories are joining with right right wing groups in order to from a new alliance in the European Union. The US is uneasy that David Cameron’s Europscepticism would weaken the ability of a British government to be a positive force in the EU and would signal to the world its willingness to ally with neo-Nazi groups. Cameron apparently sees no problem forming an alliance with Latvian anti-Semites who honor the work of Latvians who fought alongside the Nazi Waffen SS in World War II. For some reason, David Cameron has ordered his party to quit the mainstream European People’s party which includes leaders like Sarkozy of France or Merkel of Germany and switch to an alliance with Poland’s Law and Justice party and the For Fatherland and Freedom Latvian party.
Hillary Clinton fears Cameron’s Conservative party would assume leadership of right wing European groups that seek to destroy the European Union and he apparently sees no problem being in the company of anti-Semites and those who support Nazi Germany.
We certainly have come a long way from the Conservative party of Winston Churchill.
