The purpose of Macron’s unified European army

Emmanuel Macron has admitted, Dalrymple notes, that if a referendum had been held in France, there would have been a larger majority than in Britain for leaving the European Union,

though this has not dampened in the slightest his ardour for ‘deeper’ union.

Perhaps, says Dalrymple, we should wait for the EU

to blow itself apart.

On the other hand, he says,

the political determination to keep it together, whatever populations think, is considerable and should not be underestimated. Macron’s unified European army is not to defend Europe from outside invasion, but to repress the population should it ever revolt against the EU élite.
