Brexit would threaten economic national security Cameron

first_img Facebook Comments “Leaving Europe would threaten our economic and our national security,” Cameron said in a report to parliament after dozens of MPs from his own Conservative party said they will vote for Brexit, including London mayor Boris Johnson.Cameron has called for an in-out referendum on Britain’s EU membership after securing a deal on reforms at a summit in Brussels last week.“When it comes to people’s jobs it is simply not enough to say it will be all right on the night and we will work it out,” he told parliament.“We need to properly face up to the economic consequences of a choice to leave,” he said, warning that it would be “a great leap into the unknown.”Cameron also warned about global threats from Russia and the Islamic State group, saying: “The challenges facing the West today are genuinely threatening …. In my view this is no time to divide the West.”In a barb at London mayor and Conservative party rival Boris Johnson, who declared on Sunday that he would vote to leave the EU, Cameron said: “I have no other agenda than what is best for our country.”Johnson, who is seen as a potential successor to Cameron as Conservative leader and prime minister, has been accused of pursuing political ambitions with his decision.Recommended: Britons abroad: Don’t miss out on your right to vote in the EU referendum Related posts:Mud-soaked migrants fight for food as Greek border blockade drags on Europe’s pointless exercise in Greek austerity After Greece’s apparent ‘No’ to bailout terms, Germany and France call for a eurozone summit on Greece Obama, Castro hail ‘new day’ for US-Cuba relationscenter_img LONDON — Prime Minister David Cameron on Monday warned that Britain’s departure from the European Union would threaten its economic and national security, as the pound plunged on Brexit concerns.last_img read more

If it’s the latter, well, it will be open season on pretty much every available QB once the lockout ends. What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ Cardinals expect improving Murphy to contribute right away The NFC West is still one of the weakest divisions in football, and the Cardinals could be a QB away from returning to the top.“Yes, I will give up a first round pick for Kevin Kolb,” Doug Franz said on Sports 620 KTAR’s Doug and Wolf show Tuesday. “Because I think the division’s so bad, that you get Kevin Kolb, you win this division and now your first round pick is in the 20s, and that’s fine with me.” But, Franz is confident the Cardinals could win with Kyle Orton, who will likely come cheaper than the Eagles backup.And, given the potential of John Skelton, Franz feels Orton may be the best bet for the Cardinals right now.“I do like John Skelton, but I also, if I’m Ken Whisenhunt, I’m looking at the situation…I’m saying this division’s so bad, and all I have to is if I win the division I’ve already got a home playoff game,” he said. “Kyle Orton is good enough to win this division. I can still teach John Skelton.”Tim Kempton, though, feels that the Cardinals should have their eyes on a larger goal than just winning a weak division.“It’s not about winning the division,” he said. “It’s about winning the Super Bowl.“John Skelton gives us the best chance to win the Super Bowl. Maybe not this year, but next year.”Kempton has an interesting point, though as the Cardinals have proven, once a team makes the playoffs anything is possible. Would it be worth passing up that chance, remote as it may be, just to give John Skelton more reps as the starter?What it comes down to is just how highly Ken Whisenhunt thinks of the guy he drafted in the fifth round out of Fordham just one year ago. Is he good enough to be the long-term option at QB, or is destined to become a career backup? last_img read more
