'EU lied for 50 YEARS' Farage attacks Macron's plans to build a ‘TRUE European army’

NIGEL Farage accused the European Union of “lying to us for 50 years” after French President Emmanuel Macron called for a “real European army” to reduce Europe's dependence on the United States for defence.

Nigel Farage warned a European army would be “very dangerous” and “deeply insulting” to the United States.

Speaking on his LBC radio show, Mr Farage blasted: “A true European army says Emmanuel Macron, backing up comments from Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, who said not too long ago, deference to NATO can no longer be used as a convenient alibi to argue against greater European efforts.

“Isn’t it funny some Remoaners complained Boris put some numbers on a side of a bus and somehow, that was a terrible lie.

“Do you know something, they’ve been lying to us for 50 years about the true intentions of the European Union.”

“I think a European army is very very dangerous. What an insult, and what a worry this is for those that believe in co-operation with America and others in NATO.”

Earlier today Mr Macron said Europe needed to build a real army to become less reliant on the United States, in the face of a resurgent Russia.
