The dangerous European Army idea marches on in Brussels, blasts FREDERICK FORSYTH

Basically the EDU is another huge plank in the structure coming shortly out of the European Union which marches steadily onwards to its endgame - the complete unification of the continent in every aspect.

There is a rumour that Defence Minister Lord "Freddie" Astor was being very informative but in private and what he said was caught on tape.Now the tape has been suppressed.

There can be no meaningful EDU without the transfer of command of the EU members' armed forces to a central EU control. Our own EU-Remainer fanatics know it but never mention it. Also off the discuss-list is the final unification of the currencies into the euro.At the moment this is optional - we opted out under John Major, remember? But plans are well afoot to make it mandatory.

On the defence issue a phalanx of our top military and intelligence veterans are shell-shocked but have been told to shut up. Meanwhile the Tory party is content to faff along, needing 30 days to consult 150,000 members (it can be done in a week) before we get a new prime minister.

Th true kernel of the Let-Us-Leave argument is not the loss of our sovereignty that has been accomplished so far but what is coming next. That is why the bureaucrats - Remainers to a man - are so keen to work in secret.

By the by, our Trident (nuclear submarine) technology is shared with and co-owned by the Americans who will never agree to share it with the leaky EU. Any more bright ideas Frau von der Leyen?

AS THE Channel between France and our south coast fills with inflatable boats bringing the relentless tide of illegal immigrants to the UK, they are intercepted and landed not back in France but right here.

Then they are taken care of, housed, fed, "processed" (meaning allowed to stay pending why-bother? appeals): there is another striking image. Our harbours are choked with their boats and these seem to be mostly brand new inflatables with equally new outboard engines.

Clearly they are not penniless and one doubts the traffickers are donating them from the nonexistent goodness of their hearts.

There appears to be a brisk trade over there as the immigrants use their life savings to purchase these boats (nice profits for someone) knowing their use-span will be a few hours before interception and confiscation. So what will happen to these almost-new boats and engines? Just an idea.

Put them up for auction and donate the proceeds to good causes. Two things are becoming pretty clear.

One is that the boats should never go back to France for re-use and the other is that the French, rather than stop them, are practically waving them off on the last 20 miles of their 5000-mile odyssey from the Middle East or Africa.
