    A EUROPEAN Union army is to be built post-Brexit after leaders revealed Britain was the sole reason it had not already happened.

    Czech Republic Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka said on Monday the soon to be 27-member club needs to come up with a joint military force to face increasing threats from terrorism, Russia aggression and the unparalleled influx of refugees.

    Speaking to a meeting of Czech diplomats in Prague, he said a common EU army should not compete with NATO but should make the EU a "more actionable and reliable partner".

    Mr Sobotka joins a growing number of European leaders and officials who are calling to intensify military integration following the Brexit vote and terrorist attacks across Europe this summer.

    Why would the UK care if they decide to co operate more closely?
