Percentage Points

If it is not the EU telling us how much we may spend, then it is NATO telling us on what we may spend it.

We should meet the two per cent defence spending target when Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia do so. They spend virtually nothing on defence. Ask yourself why not.

And we should stay in NATO if Finland joins it, but not otherwise. Not unless Turkey leaves, either.

With an 833-mile land border with Russia, Finland is not, and has never been, a member of NATO. But Turkey is.

Doubly, then, why the hell are we?
