Every proper empire needs an army, and the EU certainly wants to become an empire – and entangle us in it as well.

Boris Johnson has left Theresa May’s Remainer deal intact on defence matters. It would keep us in the EU through three commitments: the European Defence Agency, the European Defence Fund and the Permanent Structured Cooperation. All bind us into the EU’s Common Security and Defence Policy.

Come and discuss. All welcome. Free entry.
