    Default a missed bullet

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...er-brexit-vote

    he EU’s foreign policy chief has outlined her vision of closer European military cooperation following the UK’s vote to leave the union.

    Federica Mogherini has proposed setting up a Brussels headquarters for European “battlegroups” capable of mounting military interventions in crises. A headquarters was one of four priority proposals to be presented to EU governments after the Brexit vote, she told Italian newspaper La Repubblica.

    EU defence policy remains in the hands of European governments, rather than the EU executive.

    While insisting she was not proposing an EU army, Mogherini said the UK’s impending departure had left other EU governments with no excuse for not moving forward on giving the EU a defence capacity. The idea has long been cherished by European federalists, but categorically resisted by London.
    sorry who said that was rubbish before Brexit?

    If it had the French in it, it would surrender.

    If it had the Germans in it, it would start agitating for bits of Poland back

    If it had anyone else in it it would only need a minibus for transport

    That's why.

    You forgot to add, it'll probably not invade other countries illegally. But rather focus on defence of the realm. Remember that when 'defence' meant exactly that?

    I thought my German stereotype had covered that. Unless you're suggesting that Poland was asking for it?

    Because I wouldn't want my son put in harm’s way at the behest of another nation of which I feel absolutely no affinity for?
