More than a third of British public supports creation of a European Union standing army, poll finds

The British public is broadly supportive of the creation of a standing army for the European Union, a new poll suggests. The YouGov survey found that 36 per cent actively supported a permanent multi-national  force drawn from all the bloc’s nations, compared to only 29 per cent who opposed such a move.

European Commission President, Juncker already called for a common EU-military in March 2015.
