EU will soon become the United States of Europe

Plans for the United States of Europe were revealed and it seems that the superstate will be created in just nine months.

The Brussels boss advocates the creation of an EU army, coast guard and the merging of eurozone economies in the bombshell dossier presented to leaders at today’s summit in Bratislava.

Arch-federalist Mr Juncker wants all of his ambitious reforms carried out by June next year at the latest, meaning the bloc will have changed beyond all recognition long before Britain officially quits.

His five-point plan covers boosting investment, creating a digital single market, getting a grip on security, bolstering European defence and creating new schemes to engage youngsters in the Brussels project.

It emerged as the former Luxembourg PM met leaders of 27 member states, minus Britain, at a make-or-break conference in Bratislava designed to shape the future direction of the EU.

Amongst the controversial proposals are setting up a huge foreign aid programme for north and central Africa – which will be up to £75 billion – to boost countries’ economies and slow down the number of migrants heading to Europe.

British taxpayers could be on the hook for around £825 million if the scheme goes ahead.

Mr Juncker is also reviving controversial proposals for a European border and Coast Guard force – which he wants operational by October – and which will immediately post 200 officers and 50 vehicles to Bulgaria’s border with Turkey.

That reform will be accompanied by the setting up of a new computer database designed to monitor when non-EU citizens enter and leave the bloc’s external borders, in a move it is hoped will thwart terrorists traveling to and from the Middle East.

But perhaps most controversial is the official declaration that Brussels is now seeking its own armed forces to rival those of NATO.

The EU bigwig wants an EU army made up of “common battle groups” to be set up by June next year, operating from a centralised HG and with a mandate to carry out “military interventions in crises”.

Worryingly the document does not explicitly state that such “crises” would have to happen abroad, raising the prospect that Brussels troops could be stationed in member states to crush anti-EU protests.

Elsewhere Mr Juncker advocates shoring up the euro by completing the Capital Markets Union, which would effectively see the eurozone’s financial systems all merged into one big European economy.

And he has unveiled potentially unworkable plans to role out a new generation of mobile internet, called 5G, and to install WiFi in every city, town and village centre across the EU.

Finally, there are plans for a European Solidarity Corps which would encourage youngsters from across the continent to sign up for Brussels-backed community projects.

The proposal, which was included in Mr Juncker’s State of the Union address earlier this week, has attracted criticism for encroaching on member states’ sovereignty.
