    But you know this, you are just a poor troll.

    No but that isn't what is being proposed. There is no such thing as an EU army, that is just a tabloid slogan.

    The EU army, is not actually an EU army it is a defence co-operation very similar to the one Hunt has proposed.

    The EU army under an EU commander with conscription is simply tabloid lies.

    The EU army myth

    While there is no EU army and defence remains exclusively a matter for member states, the EU has recently taken big steps to boost defence cooperation.

    Welcome towards the formation of an European Naval Force, at the request of the UK, to counter Iranian piracy. Brexit might mean Brexit, but it's clear Europeans are stronger working together rather than relying on being the USA's bitch....
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    Britain will be part of the "EU army" even after Brexit, that's because it's a defence co-operation and Britain has no ships.

    Boris has form when it comes to British interests in Iran. Anyone remember Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe?

    Steady on, you don’t want to deploy the entire U.K. defence capability at once!
