John Wallace Comments on "The Future of Europe"

Dear All,
I have received this from Brussels.
http://www.europarl.europa.eu/resources/library/media/20171023RES86651/20171023RES86651.pdf
PLEASE CIRCULATE IT.

This 24 page EU booklet outlines the vision of a United States of Europe, some of it will come reality within the next few weeks others in the next decade.

Also see page 4 on Security and Justice (EPPO) and Europol connected to the much detested European Arrest Warrant.
Pay particular attention to page 5. The EU calls for a European Defence Fund or EDF (£5 billion already committed so far in June 2017) for an "EU Army" under what they euphemistically call PESCO.

The EU are set for formal approval meetings for PESCO at the end of November 2017. This means the UK government committing to continue handing over vast sums of UK taxpayers money in a BINDING agreement FOREVER, that is already diverting funds away from the cash strapped UK Ministry Of Defence (MOD), to the EU Treasury instead. It will be the EU Commission who then decide on an ever increasing level, all matters relating to defence and security including within the UK. The EU Commission will have sole competence to decide on military procurement contracts, deployment for missions for a Europe wide defence and security with the British Army, Royal Navy, RAF and UK defence industry (BAe Systems) locked inside it for the benefit of EU Foreign policy anywhere the EU sees fit to send them. The UK government and MOD having surrendered sovereignty over its own defence to the EU, will have only "Observer Status" as we pay through the nose for European defence and security.

Just in time for Christmas. Is this what you wanted for Christmas? The UK government and the EU seem to think you do and are hell bent on delivering it with bells on. Is this what Theresa May means when she says "Brexit means Brexit"?
