Did Nick Clegg lie about EU not wanting an army?

'Britain has blocked EU proposals, backed by France, Spain, Italy, Poland and Germany, that would have paved the way for developing a new fleet of unmanned surveillance drones and a European Air Force comprised of heavy transport and air-to-air refuelling planes.

A recent report by Lady Ashton's EU External Action Service revealed that work had already begun on モremotely piloted aircraft systems", known as drones.

The drones will be known as Males, standing for "Medium Altitude Long Endurance" and under commission proposals would have been "directly purchased, owned and operated by the Union" along with military aircraft.`
