- ‘The EU Army DOES Exist’ Tory MEP Believes that THIS Policy is the Root of EU Superstate
by AURORA BOSOTTI, https://www.express.co.uk/
TORY MEP David Bannerman insisted the European Union has made strides to institute an “EU superstate” after Commission boss Jean-Claude Juncker urged member states to help strengthen common defence systems.
The Tory politician trashed Jean-Claude Juncker following his fourth and last State of the Union address before he steps down as head of the European Commission in 2019. Mr Bannerman suggested that the top Eurocrat’s calls for stronger defence ties among member states signalled the European Union is dialling up plans to create an “EU Superstate” with a “fully operational” army at its disposal. Speaking exclusively to Express.co.uk in Strasbourg, the Tory MEP said: “He talks about making the army that everyone says doesn’t exist.
“The EU army does exist, as a permanent structured headquarters – PESCO it’s called – that is going to become fully operational. There are some strides as we expect towards the EU superstate which I’m not happy with.”
