So now we know it was really all about Rule Britannia and Empire
First of all, this has absolutely ****** all to do with Brexit other than a common jingoistic rhetoric - there's nothing in EU membership that would stop us from doing this anyway.
Secondly what on earth does he think he's on about? Brexit is an opportunity to fight more remote wars?? Against Russia and China or their proxies???
The level of delusion and unreality is positively terrifying.
