With one tweet, the EU President has announced that the EU Defense Force was soon to come into being as part of the Lisbon Treaty. He referred to it as Sleeping Beauty, but those who oppose the Octopus known as the EU would call it something else, like, maybe an insurance card by Germany and France that they keep the rest of the EU members right where there are. We don’t wanna lose another Britain, now do we?
She is awake, the Sleeping Beauty of the Lisbon Treaty: Permanent Structured Cooperation is happening. I welcome the operational steps taken today by Member States to lay the foundations of a European #DefenceUnion. Our security cannot be outsourced. https://t.co/LNACbCdeWH

“I want there to be a constitutional treaty to create a federal Europe… This constitutional treaty will then have to be put to the member-states and those that don’t approve it will automatically have to leave the EU,” Mr. Schulz explained.
