    So you are saying that the government publicly airing items on the Internet is hoping to keep the populace in ignorance.
    How bizarre.

    What about specifically in UK? Modest? And how often?
    those princes have accomplished most who paid little heed to keeping their promises, but who knew how to manipulate the minds of men craftily.

    Perhaps a daft question, but why do we have 4000 troops stationed in Germany?

    Because that's all that's left of British Army of the Rhine. When once upon a time, there were over 60,000 British troops in Germany. That was, of course, when pre EU German politicians didn't have a problem with the UK having almost half its army and defence budget defending the inner German border, when everyone was at risk of getting their arses fried. After all, it meant they could invest more money in German industry, rather than on spending it on their own armed forces in defence of their own country. How to dominate Europe [Part 3]

    Mind you, they had to spend a few bob on repairing bars.

    It is an international exercise! The clue is in the fact that 13 nations are participating.

    They know very few people read that information page which is updated daily, and the media/press don't even bother to look at it.

    lol Not to worry though, the Brit taxpayers forked out the readies for that?
    The EU has failed as an entity. It has undermined democracy, it has wrecked prosperity, and above all it is currently engaged in destroying the very cultures of its individual members
