Europe needs our co-operation on defence

Prime Minister, Theresa May, has received some criticism from Remainers for allegedly “threatening” the EU by simply pointing out how failure to reach a Brexit deal would adversely affect UK-EU co-operation on security.

May is, however, right to remind the EU of areas where it benefits from co-operation with Britain – and where it would lose out if it chose to drive too hard a bargain with us.

The hypocrisy of denouncing the Government for daring to raise the prospect of no deal, while taking every ludicrous ultimatum from the EU as entirely natural and justified, needs to be challenged.

Britain should not be afraid to talk about its strengths in Brexit negotiations – and another such strength is defence. We are the leading military power in Europe, with the fifth-largest defence budget worldwide – and along with Greece, Estonia, Poland, and the United States, we are one of just five NATO members currently meeting the bloc’s target of spending 2 percent of GDP on defence.

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
