‘We do NOT support EU Army’ Ireland TURNS on Brussels in shock security broadside

‘We do NOT support EU Army’ Ireland TURNS on Brussels in shock security broadside:

‘Dublin and Brussels have grown closer during the past few months with Brexit negotiations siding the Republic of Ireland against their nearest neighbour.

But this week a group of Irish MEPs have warned Brussels not to expect unquestioning loyalty from Dublin – especially on the subject of security.

The warning was issued in a joint report by MEPs from Fine Gael, Ireland’s ruling government party, called ‘Ireland and the EU: Defending Our Common European Home’.

The report said: “We believe the time is right to openly debate the issue of Irish security and defence. We cannot leave this debate to the member states.

“Ireland should support the emerging European Defence Union and should seek to shape it according to our needs and traditions.“We want to make it clear that we do not support the creation of an EU Army.”Instead the report called for Brussels to “respect the traditions” of individual countries and focus on “collaboration”, not the creation of an all-out joint army.

Ireland, as a neutral state whose military primarily focus on peace-keeping, is especially concerned at that impact an EU Army could have on its foreign policy.’

We know they’re in so much financial shit with EU, hate Britain, and despise the European Parliament for telling them to have another referendum until the people vote correctly…..”
