EU. In or Out?

Posted: 18/05/2016 at 11:41

In your opinion Verdun. At least I am trying to distinguish, my opinion from proven fact.

Sorry Tetley.

2 separate points.

1 In response to your Churchill quote.

2 the view expressed on Radio 4 this am., by Sir Richard Shirref, former Deputy Supreme Commander of NATO.

Some more stirring from me.

He warned: “I am convinced that Putin wants to see Russia as a great power again.

“I am convinced that he will use every opportunity to achieve that. I am convinced that he sees Nato as an enemy and I am convinced that he could see a scenario and indeed he has war gamed it, he has practised it in which he snatches the Baltic States and then holds Nato to ransom with nuclear weapons and Nato collapses.”

He said Nato needed to “sit up” and take notice and provide a suitable deterrence to Russia.

He said a permanent Nato presence was needed in the Baltics.

In his book, Sir Richard also claims then defence secretary Philip Hammond had wanted “formal action” taken against him when he spoke out about defence cuts in 2014 but nothing could happen because he reported to Nato not to him.

Sir Richard also believes Britain and the EU will be stronger if the former stays part of the union.

Obviously, this is not fact, but opinion. I think it is worth listening to, as he is a former Chief of the Defence staff.

Hellebores - black spot?

As fidget says, there is a great deal of difference between black spot, which many Hellebores suffer from, and, don't necessarily cause too many problems, and, Hellebore black death, which is fatal.

Mr Churchill was also behind the original idea of a united Europe, in order to prevent future wars.

A former head of the UK armed services, spoke on Radio 4 this morning, about the increasing possibility of a war with Russia.

I think that a united Europe might be the best way of dealing with this, but this is only my opinion.

Morning all.

Horrible here, so hopefully some potting on in the greenhouse, before trip to get next course of holiday injections.

Things with neighbours no better Fg. They sent me a bill last week, for drive maintenance. As we had not agreed to this, plus no maintenance has actually taken place, I politely refused.

Have a good day.

Hugs to Dove and WW, plus Joyce.
