An Aside: Is there any legitimate reason for Belgium to have a defensive pact with Piedmont? It feels a little out of place and I'd happily get rid of it if it was a foible of the AI.

Due to the unsettling buildup of warships by the newly formed North German Confederation and Prussia, their large armada of new warships under construction and their new fleet of recently completed military transport ships, the British Government has concluded that this massive new navy threatens British interests around the world and the peaceful commerce with our allies. The loss of our new colony of Nigeria has raised the specter of aggressive actions by the German allied nations beyond the center of Europe. Britain must therefore act to preserve the balance of power and contain the German nations from international mayhem.
With Her Majesty Queen Victoria's blessing, Great Britain hereby declares a limited war against the North German Confederation with the intent to limit German naval activity, thwart any aggressive moves outside of their national territory and to reclaim our colony of Nigeria.

Of course you'll all happily accept this as you'll be so much better off under the domination of a despotic, paranoid, aggressive Great Britain as the one dominant world power, rather than having multiple nations with similar powers that serve as checks on each other.

We remain strictly and entirely neutral, and only ask of the involved parties to respect the Treaty of London and not send forces through our sovereign territory.
