This research was inspired by the 4th of September 2020 broadcast of UK Column News on the subject of the European Rapid Defence Force, EUFOR which combines both civilian Police and Military power to intervene anywhere in the World at short notice. Around the period of 2007 and 2008 posters on forums at the time were commenting how police were being trained in shooting practice with targets that had women. Children and old people printed on them and also suggested that by utilising an International force there is a pool of combatants not of the ‘’problem’’ Country who would be more able to not feel any conscience or mercy towards people not of their own kind. This is something to keep in mind.
Already we can see that there can be no allegiance or protection as deemed at will by the ruling class towards those who carry out their instruction as witnessed by the treatment of British troops who served as peacekeeping force in Northern Ireland when they were excluded from the amnesty that was afforded to the IRA as a result of the Good Friday Agreement and who are now presently being prosecuted for conducting their duty for which they had been conditioned and trained.

(Some of the Statements included in an article posted in Politico on 8th June 2017 come across as very deceptive as they contradict observable facts seen on the ground through official policy, though it may be true that Teresa May may have lain prostrate to the will of the EU while acting in her brief role as Prime Minister.)
UK stands aside as EU boosts defence
London’s opposition to defence cooperation has vanished since the Brexit vote. 8th June 2017
By HARRY COOPER AND JACOPO BARIGAZZI
‘’It’s been an article of faith for decades that the U.K. opposes any form of EU defence cooperation. Regular headlines in many anti-Brexit tabloids before last year’s referendum accused the European Commission of hatching plans to create an EU army, something regularly rebuffed by frustrated officials in Brussels.’’
(Brussels may have denied this fact but so has the British Establishment all along also and it would seem logical for anybody who sympathises with the EU to support their policies).
(The following is a quote from a previous article which both exposes the lie through David Cameron’s own words and the fact that post Brexit Britain will be excluded from the Joint funding and manufacturing plan for military procurement within EU member states which in turn means no benefit of industry or associated jobs for the UK but they want to put our troops in harms way at their whim and also have us hand over our military hardware as well as put our Nuclear capability into French control which ultimately could be transferred to Germany. It is following the EU tradition of change through stealth.)
[Quote from Strength and Unity in the EU 9th May 2016]In a speech last May, then Prime Minister David Cameron said: “Suggestions of an EU army are fanciful: national security is a national competence, and we would veto any suggestion of an EU army.”
A possible reason for this policy U-turn? Money. For a company to be able to benefit from the new Defence Fund, the project in question must be based in at least two EU countries with at least three participants.
“Actions funded under the programme shall not be located on the territory of non-member states during the entire duration of the action,” reads the draft law that must be signed off by both MEPs and EU governments before it comes into force.’’[unquote]
(The following article was published while David Cameron was still Prime Minister and is proof that Britain has been totally involved with Military Unification all along)

‘’ BRITAIN has hosted secret Euro-Army war games on Salisbury Plain, in a move feared to be a firm step towards the formation of an EU army
It comes as the UK leads the EU’s high-readiness European Battle Group, which could see senior British Army officers take direct orders from Brussels Eurocrats.
Despite owing its allegiance to the Crown, the British Army was even ordered to emblazoned Headquarter vehicles with EU flags asserting beyond any doubt that they were not involved in a NATO exercise.
The revelation caused former defence secretary Liam Fox to last night warn: “They will try to say this has nothing to do with an EU Army but the truth is that, bit by bit, they are creating the mechanisms that will make it possible.”
A British Army Brigadier was today on standby to lead the fighting and peacekeeping force, including and hundreds of British troops, if it deploys on operations.
That order, however, would not come from Permanent Joint Headquarters in Northwood, but rather from Federica Mogherini, who heads the EU’s Foreign Affairs and Security Policy.
(The role of this ‘’Permanent Joint Headquarters’’ has since been removed and allocated to mainland Europe as of 29th March 2019)
(This Information available on Wikipedia exposes the lie):
[quote]The Permanent Joint Headquarters (PJHQ) is the British tri-service headquarters from where all overseas military operations are planned and controlled. It is situated at Northwood Headquarters in Northwood, London. The Permanent Joint Headquarters is commanded by the Chief of Joint Operations (CJO) and the current CJO is Vice Admiral Ben Key.
Major General Christopher Wallace led the team that began establishing the headquarters from 1994. ( This fact confirms that its existence was with the knowledge of John Major, Tony Blair, Gordon Brown, Nick Clegg and David Cameron who all served in premier or joint premier positions.)“Senior officers in the Army and RAF did not welcome this initiative and Wallace had to deploy his considerable skills of advocacy to win that battle”(to establish the new joint headquarters).
The Permanent Joint Headquarters was established on 1 April 1996 to enhance the operational effectiveness and efficiency of UK-led joint, potentially joint and multi-national operations, and to exercise operational command of UK forces assigned to multinational operations led by others. Wallace was appointed as CJO in the rank of lieutenant general. The PJHQ started to assume responsibility for military operations worldwide (fully operational) on 1 August 1996. The 35-hectare Northwood Headquarters site has belonged to the RAF since 1938. [unquote]
( What follows next is information related to the long term plan for the establishment of funding within the EU for Joint military manufacture and procurement, and we have already since observed how the EU stated that they will cut off the UK from using the Galileo GPS system which the UK had been a prime contributor in both technological know how and financial contributions.)
From Politico November 30th 2016 :
‘’The European Commission announced Wednesday plans designed to encourage greater cooperation between EU governments in defence procurement and research.
Under the European Defence Action Plan, the EU will allocate €500 million in annual funding for defence research from 2020 and change the European Investment Bank’s rules to allow it to fund defence projects.
The plan builds on the EU’s Global Strategy for Security and Defence, developed by the bloc’s foreign policy chief Commissioner Federica Mogherini, and is intended to reinforce the EU-NATO joint declaration, signed earlier this year in Warsaw.’’
From politico By JACOPO BARIGAZZI AND HARRY COOPER June 7th 2017:
‘’Europe’s new defence cooperation plans, launched Wednesday, mark the first time the EU budget will be used to help buy military equipment and on joint defence capabilities. Conceived long before Trump became president, the aim is not to secure “independence” from the U.S. but rather “strategic autonomy,” said European Commissioner for Industry Elżbieta Bieńkowska, an architect of the defence fund plans.’’
‘’The fund envisages around a half billion euros for military technology research and development for 2019 and 2020, rising to €1.5 billion a year from 2021. The goal is to drive consolidation in the EU’s fractured defence industry (Europe now has 178 weapons systems compared to 30 in the U.S.) leading, it is hoped, to a further €5.5 billion in total defence spending by EU governments each year.’’
‘’The so-called Defence Fund represents a historic push by the EU into a new phase of cooperation on military and security policy, including on procurement of weapons and new technologies. It comes at a time when the new U.S. president has raised doubts about his commitment to NATO’s principle of collective defence, prompting European leaders, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel, to warn that the EU can no longer wholly rely on its superpower ally.’’
‘’One senior EU diplomat said the EU’s ambitions would be judged more on its ability to coordinate security and defence policy and less on its ability to reform the eurozone.
“The real test is going to be on defence and not on the euro,” the diplomat said, noting that if a conflict were to develop in, say, the Balkans, the EU should have the capability to intervene without turning to London or Washington to take the lead.
This ability to put EU boots on the ground will depend heavily on decisions over the next few months on financing for existing EU battlegroups, comprised of approximately 1,500 soldiers, which have never been deployed, mainly because of funding disputes.’’ https://www.politico.eu/article/trumps-tweets-boost-europes-defense-push/
(Britain will more likely be cut off from benefiting from this financial boost from within the EU Conglomerate)
‘’On other EU military initiatives London has been a reluctant partner. For months, it opposed moves to consider a new military unit that will be responsible for EU training missions in Somalia, Mali and the Central African Republic — the Military Planning and Conduct Capabilities (MPCC) — as an EU military HQ. London has also been a historical opponent of anything resembling an EU army.
‘’When asked what this meant for post-Brexit Britain, Bieńkowska said: “Now they are in, and they support it.” But she noted that U.K. participation in the new initiative would be “one of the series of difficult topics to be discussed” during the Brexit negotiations.
The EU’s chief Brexit negotiator, Michel Barnier, is no stranger to the topic of European defence. In 2015, as special adviser to European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker on defence and security policy, Barnier made clear his vision of a European defence policy. “If Europe is to live up to tomorrow’s security challenges, the EU’s soft power must be matched by collective hard power,” he said.’’
(We are observing the covert dismantling of of British armed forces both from a continuous line of British Premiers plus that of EU strategic forward planning, meaning that they may have also deceived us all along.)
(There is a need for a new political party in the UK to challenge what will stand as the second political party of the UK and the name of the party to be challenged will be called: The Lib-Lab-Con Party with ‘’Con’’ being the operative word. Ideally the members of the new challenging party should comprise of people of the same calibre as those who made up the now disbanded Brexit Party. )

[Quote]Since at least 1998, the European Union has been thinking of its own defence force, the European Security and Defence Policy (ESDP) and the accompanying 60,000 strong European Rapid Reaction Force, which would not be a part of NATO. This has drawn some warnings from the US telling the EU not to consider this.[unquote]
