  1. I’m not a huge fan of the Express, but Britain has to be careful that they don’t find themselves part of a European army. Already, Germany has incorporated Romanian, Hungarian and Bulgarian regiments into their army. Their argument is that they can no longer rely on the USA for a reasonable rapid response to Russian aggression. Zapad 17 is about to start, which will put 100,000 Russian troops on exercise in Belarus, which has got the Baltic States and Poland jumpy. If there is a European army headed by Germany (and to a lesser extent France); I would rather create a new deterrent and defence cooperation force with the ‘Five Eyes’ nations, that of the United States, The United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
