The UK armed forces, in terms of personnel numbers and equipment, have been hollowed out through never ending budget cuts. This has happened whilst the UK is a member of the EU which is supposedly making more secure. When we have to call upon foreign nations to help us for fundamental defence tasks that we used to be able to perform ourselves it is clear that our EU membership is having the opposite effect on our nation’s finances and therefore our nation’s security.
Furthermore, the restrictions placed upon our armed forces by the European Courts of Human Rights hampers their ability in the field, effectively tying one hand behind their backs.
Finally, the EU drive for their own army by taking over the armed forces of the member states is another example of sovereignty being stripped away from the UK, slice by slice. Some undeniable evidence is linked in the articles below and in the other posts on this website.
