I never accused you of having nothing else to do Danny, i merely asked you to provide a link to the news story you saw as i couldn't find the story you were referring too.

When i make a reference to a news story i normally provide a link, it isn't difficult in this day and age.

I think GGDB is a terrific forum, life would be dull if we all had the same opinion.

Jagz

Let me start by responding to the final sentence in your above post. You say life would be dull if we all had the same opinion. This puzzles me! You have the inability to debate in a reasonable manner with anyone who disagrees with your political beliefs, so please don’t come the nice guy. It is far too late for that.

The reason for my delay in giving you a direct link was that I first heard mention of President Macron’s comments regarding the future of the EU, on the BBC news.

I have now purchased the source of his interview. It was The Economist, dated November 9th - 15th 2019. The heading is,

“On the edge of a precipice”, Macron’s stark warning to Europe”

I found his views regarding Europe’s future to be very interesting and enlightening. He obviously is acutely aware that the EU cannot go on depending on the USA for military support against the perceived threat from Russia. However, having raised these concerns, Germany is not exactly in agreement with him.

So just stop for a moment. There are 27 members of the EU, including the UK. Why is it we only hear what France, Germany and the UK have to say about the EU. I think the answer lies in the economic clout these three participants have compared to the other 24 member state. I digress!

One of the things which concerns me is that there are currently about 3 million EU citizens living in the UK. The current population of Scotland is approximately 5 million.

I am 88. I was born just 13 years after World War 1, which ended in 1918. So let’s fast forward 88 years from now. Will the EU citizens living in the UK outnumber the number of Scots living here?

In reading the following excerpt from the full report...


... I see no mention of conscription into a (non existant) European Union Armed Forces.
The Common Securityand Defence Policy (CSDP) is dependent upon existing member states armed forces. If member states conscript personel that is the concern of the member states: Britain's armed forces are voluntary and have been since around 1963.

I am making the following post on the assumption your post is levelled at me. If I am wrong in that supposition, I apologise. So I will proceed on the assumption that your above post was in response to one of my posts.

You obviously were in the RAF for a long period. Your mention of the Common Security and Defence Policy indicates to me that you have been used to reading Standing Orders on your barracks room walls for years.

The CSDP you quote is like the Highway Code. Who bothers about it after they have passed their driving test?

My post regarding conscription was made after reading an interview given by President Macron of France to The Economist. He is a politician, with more attention being paid to than your CSDP.

Or thousands upon thousands from the other thread where you do talk about nothing but.

You weren't "understanding" Danny, you were wantonly patronising him. yes.gif

Those who live in glass houses...


Honestly Kem, i find it harder and harder to get to your point.

Are you saying i talk about independence but don't want to talk about independence?

Your defence of your fellow Britnats are admiral, but at the end of the day they voted Leave, the very thing you voted against.

And that is why your dear union is in its death throes. yes.gif

Jagz are you for real? Do you think other people have nothing else to do but spend hours on this joke of a forum. I will provide the link you want. I am not avoiding the issue.

I'll let others draw their own conclusions. yes.gif

That is why i asked Danny to provide a link, but not for the first time we're being diverted away from the topic by Danny.

You may well be right Wombat, and you can throw sectarianism into the mix too, which is something Danny likes to lay at the door of others. wink.gif
