Juncker Statement

Postby miner » Sat Feb 11, 2017 9:25 pm

I have just read this:

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said he fears Britain will divide the European Union's 27 remaining members by making different promises to each country during its Brexit negotiations.

"The other EU 27 don't know it yet, but the Brits know very well how they can tackle this," Juncker told Deutschlandfunk radio. "They could promise country A this, country B that and country C something else and the end game is that there is not a united European front."

Mr Juncker also reportedly said he would not seek a second term as European Commission president when his five-year term expires in 2019.


He must have had more strawberries than usual during the day to come out with this profound insight. He's always talked in French, but this is a real Gold Medal prizewinner.

It'll undoubtedly assist the Dutch, the French and the German voters to reconsider whether they wish to continue to be members of the EU.

He'll be gone within two months at this rate, never mind 2 years.

Herr Juncker says that Britain may divide the EU's remaining members, and that Britain may not face a united Europe during negotiations. You say this is "deluded crap."

So, you now agree that the rest of Europe is united and Britain will not be able to divide them. Some of us have been saying this for some time.

For the benefit of any and all readers of this thread, I confirm that Atticus has amended the content of my original post from what I had stated so that it reads something entirely different.

Atticus, grow up, FFS.

Wrong, I said it was "delusional crap".

And no, I do not agree that the rest of Europe is united and for the record, I never did.

Oh, I just caught a glimpse of a pair of tits.

So, people who think the rest if Europe is not united are delusional.

Mr J seemed to have suggested a very possible way forward.

Perhaps it is media bias but I always find Mr Juncker very negative. He also contradicts himself. Not necessarily good values for leading the EU!
