Don't Do It! Any form of Defence union is a very bad idea

I outline in my book The Occupation of Britain about the EU's military plans of an EU army. That has always been their plan. In fact this was a plan that stretched all the way back to the 1950s. Even in the 1970s, Prime Minister James Callaghan regarded NATO as the only way of ensuring European security instead of a European army. It is worth noting that Callaghan was the last British Prime Minister who actually served in the military. We haven't had one since. As I said in my book The Occupation of Britain:

In policy questions, Blair was at the forefront of pioneer thinking on the creating of a European army and undertook collaborative defence projects with other EU member states.

Then again it crept back out of the woodwork. In April 2014, we had warnings about this when Nigel Farage debated Nick Clegg. Clegg called it a fantasy. We know all that already don't we? Clegg called that a fantasy. It seems that since then, that fantasy became reality and it is all admitted.

I also proposed a defence policy that I think we should pursue in my second book Restoring Britain post Brexit whereby I say that we should not be in any form of defence union with the EU. Why? Because it would undermine NATO for a start, which I talked of also leaving, but leaving NATO is another debate for another day. Regarding the EU's defence union, they were at break-neck speed when it came to offense integration which is what I would call it. Here is an extract from my book Restoring Britain post-Brexit:

I called this offence programmes rather than defence programmes. It is because the EU wants their own military force. The EU wants to have a madman's contest.

Leave campaigners pointed to the dangers of integrating Britain's armed forces into an EU military force, run by unelected bureaucrats in Brussels, most of whom never did one minute of military service. Meanwhile, Remain campaigners denied there was any possibility of an EU army in the near future. That was during the EU referendum. Think of how far the EU advanced with their military agenda since the 2016 EU referendum. Pretty stark.

We should look at the EU's track record. They made a dog's dinner of the situation in Yugoslavia in the 1990s, whereby NATO had to come in and pick up the pieces. They made a right mess in the Ukraine by trying to force the country into the EU. Then there was the refugee crisis whereby they stopped the competent Italian navy from doing their jobs properly, thereby resulting in the EU's incompetence and many drownings. How about the terrorist attacks that the EU may have used as a pretext to bring in their EU army. That should be taken under consideration. One must also consider that other than Britain, France is the only European power with a substantial military force. The EU remained undeterred by their failings in their own makings and still pressed ahead. If you want to stay alive, buy my books through the links below.
