- ‘No One Believed Me!’ Farage Was Right as UK Avoids Being Dragged into Juncker’s EU Army

THE outgoing UKIP leader faced ridicule during the Brexit campaign for suggesting an EU army was a possibility – but Juncker’s speech today confirmed the plan.
During the Brexit campaign, Nigel Farage faced criticism and ridicule for raising the prospect of British troops being sucked into an EU army. But, Jean-Claude Juncker’s State of the Union address to the European Parliament today all but confirmed the plans. Mr Juncker pushed forward his agenda for a European superstate this morning with terrifying plans for an EU army.
Nigel Farage told Sky News: “When I raised this prospect in the referendum, I was told by the Remain campaign, ‘don’t be silly,’ ‘don’t believe that,’ ‘there’ll never be a European army’. “Well, here it is! And rather than it being a force for peace, it’s a dangerous army.” He added: “Juncker is building an army, navy, and air force. It’s an independent foreign policy. “What they’re doing here is kissing goodbye to NATO and setting up their own independent military missions and headquarters.”
The outgoing UKIP leader delivered an incredible takedown response to the EU Commission president’s speech in Strasbourg. He attacked Jean-Claude Juncker for his plans for a “European army” and “more Europe” in the next 12 months.
Mr Farage also delighted in the Brexit campaign, which cuts any ties to joining the European military force. He added: “The EU leaders are basically saying we can’t rely on the Americans, we can do this on our own. “Indeed it was the usual recipe for more Europe and in this particular case of course more military Europe.“When you set up parallel structures with Nato, one is ultimately going to be the top dog over the other.
“This is dangerous.”
