British voters cannot say that they have not been warned about the true intentions of the European Union with regard to the total loss of Britain’s sovereignty,
The bleating of the Tory party on this issue is gross hypocrisy, seeing as they are the very party who took us into the EU in the first place and have consistently betrayed this nation to that body,
The EU report said that Britain’s naval bases around the world should be put under the control of the European Union. It says that UK military facilities in the Falkland Islands, Gibraltar and Cyprus should fall under the EU’s control.
“This is all about the EU taking more power for itself and using our armed forces to promote its own military ambitions,” Mr Rait said.
“They would especially like to get their hands on the military facilities that we have built up over many years in our traditional bases such as Gibraltar, Cyprus and the Falklands.
“They would also love to have control over the two new British aircraft carriers (until now intended to be named the Queen Elizabeth and the Prince of Wales) that are already on the drawing board. What a dream for the EU bureaucrats to be able to have these capital ships and the highly qualified sailors of the Royal Navy under their thumb, whilst the British taxpayer would still pay the bill.”
“Voters must remember that this is not something new that is being sprung upon the public voters, despite what the Labour/Tory alliance says,” he said.
”The truth is that Britain joined the EU super army in 2004, when more than 2,000 troops were committed to a new 18,000-strong European Union army. The Tories in particular did not say a word about that at the time.
