LONDON, United Kingdom - Laws handed down from Brussels “seriously undermine” the UK’s ability to defend itself, according to a former SAS chief. General Sir Micheal Rose made the warning as a group of veterans launched a major new initiative to encourage former military personnel to vote to leave the European Union.
Sir Michael said: "Sovereignty and defense are indivisible. European law, in my view, has already seriously undermined UK's combat effectiveness as a result of the intrusion of European law into national law. And today, our servicemen and women are in danger of becoming no more than civilians in uniform."
