UK defence autonomy is under threat post Brexit Implementation Period!
According to a high ranking former army commander, the defence autonomy of the UK is under threat from the EU even after the UK leaves the Brexit Implementation Period.
For those that think the only matter up for negotiation in the Brexit talks is trade, well I have news for you.
The EU not only wants the UK on an ECJ controlled level playing field, it also wants the UK armed and security forces under EU Commission control.
And, according to Lt Gen Jonathon Riley, it’s all laid out as a trap for the unwary in the political declaration agreed between the EU and UK as part of the Withdrawal Agreement treaty.
In his piece called: “Weakening our defences: dangers in the Political Declaration” for a website called Briefings For Britain - formerly known as Briefings for Brexit he says:
“Most people think defence is not part of the EU negotiations, but it is very much in the frame due to several lines in the Political Declaration, the text which guides the talks over the future relationship.”
