British Prime Minister David Cameron is increasingly giving an impression through his recent positions that he is trying to portray UK as a new global power. This has been specifically evident in his recent clash with EU over an extra budget contribution as well as his war of words with Russian President Vladimir Putin over Ukraine. But experts believe the country lacks what it takes to materialize Cameron’s wishes. They say UK will be particularly weightless without the support of the US.

Dmitry Linnik, the bureau chief of the Voice of Russia radio station in London, has told Press TV that British prime ministers have always played the role of a US mouthpiece, adding that not many inside the international community take UK’s ambitions for a global power seriously.

“It’s long been said … that the UK is punching above its weight in international affairs. That extra weight comes solely from its close association with the United States,” Linnik said. But the UK, he added, is “sort of the American lapdog”.

“In fact, what lends the UK this additional strength of voice, but on its own of course the UK does carry that much weight.”

Linnik said UK’s rivals including Germany and France do not accept UK’s ambitions for a regional leader.

“I don’ think that Germany will ever agree to a role that would be any sense subordinate it to the United Kingdom,” he told Press TV’s UK Desk in an exclusive interview.

“So, I think Berlin will always consider itself to be the leader of the EU, and in fact it is. And I think most nations will recognize that, including the United Kingdom.”

Linnik further said the recent referendum on independence of Scotland exposed UK’s vulnerability, what he says the British public is acutely aware about.

“I don’t think there is much of an ambition at the level of the [British] population to talk about the UK as a global power. Yes, it [the UK] is a sort of significant player; nobody is disputing that. But talking about it a global power is not something that the UK people talk about seriously.”

    I had to laugh when I saw the title of the above article because Britain is the command central of global power. Britain is New Venice the continuum of the Venetian power of old that never died it found a new host like the parasite it is. New Venice has dominated the United States since the death of President Lincoln! You must also note that the British Empire aka the City of London (ancient Roman Londinium) rules the waves. What does this mean? Study Admiralty law and how this controls the business world to this very day! Britain rules the waves and its the oceans that dominate planet Earth even the religions worship the oceans and lunar orb aka Mary/Selene. You could end up seeing Britain showing its true colours shortly especially if it BRexits the European Union. Did you not all see the predictive programming movie not long back showing you Britain as the world power again? Britain has never lost this power it just veiled itself so a false enemy could be manipulated and blamed for the geopolitical troubles ahead of their global empire. So whilst everyone blames George H.W Scherff (Bushfraud) it is really his masters at the Most Honourable Military Order of the Bath which is New Venice and one of the terrorist planners of the 9/11 attacks. I hate to tell people that David Cameron controls Barack Obama but it is true, Cameron is a direct puppet of the Crown Corporation with far more true clout than Barack Obama. David Cameron comes from the Crooked Nose Clan which is overseen by the Clan Campbell who originate from Genoa. Cameron is connected to the powerful Houses of Keswick and Astor and has a direct connection to the HongKong Shanghair Banking Corporation. Has Barack Obama visited the Mansion House in the City of London yet in tucks and a dickybow minding his P’s and Q’s yet? No! Has David Cameron? Numerous times. Do not be fooled that the British Prime Minister is a poodle of the U.S. President it is simply not so. If Cameron was a nobody then why did Vladimir Putin have a lengthy talk with him? Cameron represents the most powerful Templar powers on the planet!

      When you consider that the UK, and the US, are owned and controlled by the most powerful entity on the Planet, “The Square Mile”, The Crown, may be moving away from the obviously declining US, and moving it’s power base back to where it truly belongs with the UK. The US, has been their primary point man, since the end of WWII, but the US surely must be close to the end of it’s optimum usefulness. Much same can probably be said about the EU. The chickens may finally be coming back home to roost

      I wonder what Putin said to him?

      Does Cameron have any direct connections to the Jesuits?
