Forcing The Issue
There will always have to be some, little more than token, provision to deter or repel it, but an invasion of the United Kingdom has always been wildly unlikely. During the Second World War, the German Naval High Command threatened to resign en bloc if ordered to attempt one, because they knew that it simply could not have been done.
Liberal interventionism died last week, having been comprehensively defeated by the people in the world farthest from its position and against whom it had been fighting its longest war. Yet without that, then why does this luckily unconquerable country have almost any Armed Forces? What are they for? Why would anyone now join them? In order to do what, exactly? These questions are in no way rhetorical.
