EU army called for – again.

The European Union needs its own army to help address the problem that it is not “taken entirely seriously” as an international force, the president of the European commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, said in an interview published on Sunday.

He said such a move would help the EU to persuade Russia that it was serious about defending its values in the face of the threat posed by Moscow.

“You would not create a European army to use it immediately,” Juncker told the Welt am Sonntag newspaper in Germany.

“But a common army among the Europeans would convey to Russia that we are serious about defending the values of the European Union.”

“Such an army would help us design a common foreign and security policy,”

“Europe’s image has suffered dramatically and also in terms of foreign policy, we don’t seem to be taken entirely seriously.”

Juncker also said he did not want a new force to challenge the role of Nato.

A UK government spokesman said: “Our position is crystal clear that defence is a national – not an EU – responsibility and that there is no prospect of that position changing and no prospect of a European army.”

EU fishing company bosses talk about winning a game with respect to Britain's fishing waters; but the struggle over fishing rights is serious. Ask Venezuelans if defence of sovereignty is a game, or Palestinians whether gaining it is mere play.

The EU has realised that Brexit is no game; it is the serious desire of the British population. Countries are panicking about the prospect of no-deal, as it will hurt economies in ways they refused to accept. Britain has the upper hand. Get Brexit done!

Pandemic planning in Britain is a Mess. Pandemic planning is split between the Joint Biosecurity Centre, the National Covid Response Centre and the Covid19 Taskforce.
Four separate IT systems are used (Synergy, CTAS, SGSS and HP Zone), meaning data is lost.

Too many people have died through government inaction, carelessness & slavish adherence to private companies & organisations. Billions have been thrown at private companies, often with Tory party connections, despite repeated failures across the board. https://theworker.org.uk/

Internationalism meant that they shared their information with the world and are participating in an international vaccine programme. Not vaccine nationalism USA style.
