The Labour Party is plotting to drag Britain back into an EU Army and 'Defence' pact through the back door. Writing in the in-house elite magainse Foreigh Policy, key Starmer allies David Lammy and John Healey explain what they plan to do - without quite saying it so openly that it would cost them huge numbers of 'red wall' working class votes.
The article's headline is "A Labour-led Britain will stand with the EU and NATO to defend Ukraine".
Their article is quite coy and deliberately short on details, but their game is all too clear: "The current Conservative government’s post-Brexit blind spot on Europe, exemplified in the 2021 Integrated Review, must be corrected, and the U.K. should rebuild relationships with our European allies to make Brexit work. This is why Labour will seek a new EU-U.K. security pact to complement NATO ties...."
"When it comes to talking to the EU, Britain’s political meetings are infrequent and ad hoc, and our experts and officials lack formal channels to reach out to their counterparts in the rest of Europe. This holds them back, meaning they endlessly have to refer to ministers to share information or get things done. As one of the world’s leading intelligence and security powers, it makes no sense for Britain to have such stymied cooperation with Brussels..... Improving this is in the EU’s interests just as it is in Britain’s."
"The next Labour government will seek to institutionalize our cooperation through a structured dialogue at both the political and official levels, enabling ministers and experts to exchange ideas and information more freely and at a regular tempo—much like the kind of deep and structured relationship we currently enjoy with the United States and France."
"Reaching out to each other will help Britain and the EU build a future for Ukraine. In what will doubtless be a long road ahead, we hope to advance the European Political Community, which was launched in Prague last year, bringing together 44 European countries. We think this holds important potential for Britain, Ukraine, and for working together. And Labour would also seek to strengthen bilateral ties across Europe-Led Britain Will Stand With the EU and NATO to Defend Ukraine."
The two old Remainers make clear their contempt for British public opinion, which is sensibly very wary of the UK getting involved in other people's quarrels, and firmly against being tied into EU 'defence' bodies. They know better than the rest of us, you see, so they know just what to do to rebuild the EU army while no-one's paying attention:
"European allies in NATO must take on more responsibility for European security after Ukraine. The decade and battles ahead will likely consume more ammo and different hardware than we have planned for. Therefore, new mechanisms of security cooperation between Britain and the EU can help tackle increasing threats, growing Russian aggression, and new challenges from China."
Even the warmongering and Brexit-betraying tricks of the Toeis don't satisy them: "Labour strongly welcomed the U.K. joining the EU’s military integration project, PESCO, which allows for some engagement between the U.K. and the EU on defense. But we believe we can do much more to aim to collaborate between our defense industries and on new technology, as well as strengthening cooperation in areas such as cyber-resilience and hybrid threats."
They go on to say that they believe that "closer cooperation and an EU-U.K. pact can complement our NATO obligations.....Britain and the EU are natural allies.....Reaching out to each other will help Britain and the EU build a future for Ukraine. In what will doubtless be a long road ahead, we hope to advance the European Political Community, which was launched in Prague last year, bringing together 44 European countries. We think this holds important potential for Britain, Ukraine, and for working together. And Labour would also seek to strengthen bilateral ties across Europe".
Finally, Labour's Gruesome Twosome let slip that the whole idea of getting back into bed with the Brussels mafia doesn't stop at making war. "It is our aspiration that a new partnership for security will unlock the trust to build mutually beneficial cooperation in other dimensions. As our colleague Ed Miliband, Labour’s shadow secretary of state for climate change and net zero, has said, there is an acute need for the EU, the U.K., and other partners to cooperate together on decarbonization".
"Decarbonization", needless to say, is the process of taxing and grinding down the peasants through scams such as 15 Minute Cities and charging every hospital in the UK hundreds of thousands a year in 'carbon tax' because they have to run heating and air conditioning. Whether it's wicked foreign wars or plunging us into 'green agenda' poverty, Starmer's Labour party will be even worse than the Tories they're being positioned to replace. You have been warned!
