Hutton proposes Army surrender to the French
John Hutton backs European army - Times Online
John Hutton has become the first defence secretary to back a French plan for a European army, branding those who dismiss it as “pathetic”.
Hutton said: “France is one of our closest allies, militarily. The French believe very strongly in this type of role. If we can support it, we should. I’m not one of those EU haters [who think] anything to do with the EU must by definition be terrible. There’s plenty of them around. I think frankly those kind of views are pathetic”
Nothing wrong with joint operations with the French, holding the line whilst they have lunch for instance, but this is an anti-NATO anti-American move, trying to divert resources from NATO and our own national interests to a glorious Napoleonic Europe. Add me to the ranks of the "pathetic".
