Colonel Richard Kemp, a veteran of 14 British Army tours and former head of international terrorism for the UK Joint Intelligence Committee has blasted Prime Minister David Cameron today, writing exclusively for Breitbart London on the PM’s warnings over Britain’s security and European Union (EU) membership.
On Monday, Mr. Cameron asserted that Britain’s exit from the EU could herald fresh conflicts across the continent, with some interpreting his comments to mean that Britain may find itself within a third world war due to leaving the EU.
Mr. Cameron said: “Isolationism has never served this country well. Whenever we turn our back on Europe, sooner or later we come to regret it. We have always had to go back in, and always at much higher cost.
“The serried rows of white headstones in lovingly tended Commonwealth war cemeteries stand as silent testament to the price this country has paid to help restore peace and order in Europe. Can we be so sure that peace and stability on our continent are assured beyond any shadow of doubt? Is that a risk worth taking? I would never be so rash as to make that assumption.”
He added: “Blenheim. Trafalgar. Waterloo. Our country’s heroism in the Great War”.
But Colonel Richard Kemp and security analyst Jasper Reid hit back Tuesday, writing that the European Union’s policies have created a newly belligerent Russia, a migrant crisis, a bullying, Islamist Turkey, a Jewish exodus from Europe, and more dangers.
The wrote exclusively for Breitbart London: “…in words that seem like parody, Mr. Cameron begs us to vote to remain in the EU for our own safety. He cites Blenheim, Trafalgar, Waterloo, and the First and Second World Wars when British heroism saved the continent.
The Duke of Marlborough, Churchill’s ancestor and victor at Blenheim, would certainly have voted for Brexit. His greatest victory was won against Louis XIV’s France when he destroyed the prospect of a European super state.
To compare the battles, campaigns and wars won by Marlborough, Nelson, Wellington, Lloyd-George, Haig, Churchill, and Montgomery with the pusillanimous conduct of the EU leadership is actually beyond parody. These were men of intellect and steel: valiant, determined, resolute, and unyielding.”
Adding: “Feeble political leadership has deterred and discouraged effective law enforcement, allowing mass rape and sex slavery to go unchecked for years. Jihadists have been able to recruit, train, plot and launch violent mass murder against our citizens. Criminals of all types have escaped deportation to avoid infringing their human rights.
“The EU failed to prevent the migration crisis that threatens to overwhelm many European cities and the housing, welfare, health, and education services paid for by the hard work of citizens who have been allowed no say.
“The EU failed to deploy effective naval forces along the North African coast to prevent illegal immigration across the Mediterranean. Such action, used to great effect by Australia, would not only have prevented the landing of countless unregulated immigrants on our shores but would also have saved thousands of lives and sent a firm message to both immigrants and traffickers.”
