Op-ed: David Cameron, as is usual these days, is globe trotting as he tries to secure a renegotiated European Union UK membership. When he feels the deal is as good at it gets he will announce a referendum and we the people will make our choice - Brexit or Bremain.
Pundits are predicting the referendum will take place June 2016 but Cameron has until the end of 2017 to complete this manifesto pledge.
Saturday US Secretary of State John Kerry has said the USA would like to see "a very strong United Kingdom staying in a strong EU" but is that constructive?
It has to be noted that by and large British people are suspicious of the USA and their intentions when they dabble in world affairs.
The USA has a military presence in most parts of the world, began the global economic crisis of 2008 with a helping hand from bankers and upped interest rates which this week sent global markets into a new free fall.
ITV news reports Saturday "Mr Kerry said it was "profoundly" in America's interests that the UK voted to remain in the union in the upcoming referendum.
But Mr Kerry, this time at least British people must decide what is best for them.
The USA is always clear that the best interests of that country and its citizens motivates every single move on the world stage.
There may be nothing wrong with that, although you could argue that is why we have so many countries war torn and in desperate situations. The UK is probably as bad especially if you look back over our colonial past.
But the EU referendum could have a huge impact on the UK and its citizens and we must decide not an American politician.
"Speaking at a security conference in Munich, Mr Kerry said: "I want to express the confidence of President Obama and all of us in America that, just as it has so many times before, Europe is going to emerge stronger than ever, provided it stays united and builds common responses to these challenges. "Now obviously, the United States has a profound interest in your success as we do in a very strong United Kingdom staying in a strong EU."
This of course means that our hypocritical world leaders have again be upping their carbon footprints into huge boots stomps to take part in foreign summits failing once more to lead by example.
On that score the conclusion has to be that expensive climate change summits are meaningless.
Germany's Angela Merkel has previously said she too hopes the UK will stay a member of the EU but like all these politicians she just does't get it.
UK PM David Cameron promised the people of the UK a European Union referendum in order to win a General Election.
That promise drew back in some right-wing voters who had moved their support to Ukip, the united kingdom's independence party. The promise was enough to even persuade Ukip party leader Nigel Farage to tell his supporters to tactically vote Tory in some regions.
Cameron could of course do a U Turn on the EU ref as he has done this numerous times already but many in the Brexit and Bremain camps have been waiting a lifetime to have their say on Europe.
"Denmark, Ireland and Britain joined the EEC in 1973, after Charles de Gaulle's resignation in 1969. Under the Labour Prime Minister, Harold Wilson, there was a UK referendum on continued membership of the EEC in 1975. The electorate voted 'Yes' by 67.2% to 32.8% to stay in Europe."
But that is a long time ago; 43 years more or less!
De Gaulle kept Britain out of the EU and was determined we would never join.
British people tend to be stubborn and if there is one sure way to make us want something it is to exclude us.
John Kerry should take note of that and try reverse psychology.
