No UK membership of an EU army

This petition had 1,992 supporters

We believe that the peace and security of Europe depends wholly and solely on the UK's membership of NATO, which has guaranteed the peace and security of Europe for over 60 years.

We further believe that the EU's claim that a separate EU army is necessary in the face of a resurgent Russia is yet another attempt by the EU to rob member states of another part of their sovereignty.

We therefore call upon the British government to:

1. End its plans to include the UK's armed forces in the planned or any future separate EU army;

2. Reject any request from the EU for such inclusion; and

3. Immediately withdraw its use of this bargaining chip in the Brexit negotiations with the EU.

We believe that failure by the British government to take the actions we have requested will not only weaken the UK's hand in the Brexit negotiations but will almost certainly undermine our position in NATO, which has been the real guarantor of peace and security in Europe since 1949 and NOT the EU!
