Juncker announces plans for an EU army

Jean Claude Juncker, the unelected president of the EU Commission used his state of the union speech yesterday to call for an EU army.

During the referendum campaign Nigel Farage was accused of lying about the EU's ambitions for its own army despite it already having been proposed and a German plan for an EU army headquartered in Germany being leaked to the press. In fact, the former leader of the UK's fourth largest party, Nick Clegg, described Farage's warning as a "dangerous fantasy".

A European army headquartered in Germany deployed across the continent ... what could possibly go wrong?
