Nick Clegg supports "dangerous fantasy" EU army

Last year Nick Clegg responded to Nigel Farage's warnings about plans for an EU army by describing it a "dangerous fantasy". He went on to say "it's not going to happen" and that Jean Claude Juncker "can't create an army".

Perhaps it was the shock of finding out that not only can Jean Claude Juncker create an EU army but that he's actually doing it that resulted in Nick Clegg enthusiastically calling for the UK to join the new EU army despite voting to leave the EU.

Details of plans for an EU army headquartered in Germany (of course) were leaked in May but to prevent full details being exposed before the referendum the EU refused to send them to national governments until we had voted.
