Speaking exclusively to Express.co.uk, Mr Kawczynski said: “What the French and Germans want to create is a European army. They want to ditch our dependence on Nato.
“That would be a disaster and Britain has, unfortunately, on two occasions in the past century, been compelled to enter into a European war at great cost to us.”
Mr Kawczynski, MP for for Shrewsbury and Atcham, warned Britain must not allow the French and German nations to “excerpt the supremacy of Nato” by creating their own European army.
“We have every right because if and when it all goes wrong you know who it will be us who will have to go in and sort it out, as we have had to in 1939 and as we had to in 1914.
“So, of course, there’s a vested interest in the United Kingdom in making sure that Nato and the supremacy of Nato is maintained.”
The idea of a super-national state with “one entity, one parliament, with one currency, with one foreign policy, with a simple European army” will not work for countries in central and eastern Europe, according to the Conservative MP.
President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker announced plans in 2017 to create an EU army, foreign minister and centralised financial system.
French President Emmanuel Macron responded to Mr Juncker’s vision in a speech outlining his plan for a “profound transformation” of the EU.
Europhile and former European Union president Martin Schulz, who has just entered a coalition with Angela Merkel’s conservatives, said any member states who refuse to join his new superstate must leave.
He called for a new treaty to formally convert the EU into the United States of Europe, along the lines of the United States, though bizarrely claimed this was “no threat” to individual countries.
