Juncker threatens to resign if Martin Selmayr, the man he recently promoted to Secretary General in a controversial decision is forced to leave. May I just say: Good riddance and don't let the door hit you on the way out! https://t.co/mItvqwoLdp pic.twitter.com/JwbcH9yy6s

Following Theresa May’s dinner with Jean-Claude Juncker in Brussels, we have a promise that both sides are committed to accelerating Brexit negotiations…except nobody actually believes that.
Apart from the “bear hug” that Juncker gave Britain’s Brexit Secretary, David Davis, as they went their separate ways, there is no evidence that relations are any more cordial, or that any tangible progress was made in breaking the deadlock.
Jean-Claude Juncker has vowed that no matter how bad terrorism or the migrant crisis gets, the European Union (EU) will never give up on open borders. The European Commission president said terrorism could be countered with better intelligence-sharing between member states.
On France 2’s Four Truths programme this morning, Mr. Juncker said “a lot of initiatives” will be required to strengthen security in the EU. After a bloody month for Europe in which the continent has seen multiple Islamic terror attacks — four in the last week in Germany alone — the EU president insisted better communication between member states would solve the problem.
‼️ Oh dear! UK was a net payer! Albania would be a net receiver. Corrupt and criminal state and as a bonus 60% Muslims. OUCH!

ALBANIA could be next to join the European Union and replace Britain after Brexit as Brussels Eurocrats insisted the country has its “continued support”.
There should be no doubt about the current status of the European Union. It’s crumbling before our very eyes. Between the sprawling unaccountable bureaucracy in Brussels, the unpayable debts, the unfettered immigration, and the unprecedented emergence of conservative, nationalistic groups, it’s obvious that the EU is not long for this world. No nation can survive those pressures; much less a loosely held, 24 year old political union consisting of a wide variety of languages and cultures.
And this fact is beginning to show. Not just because nations like the UK have already voted to leave the EU, and talk of independence referendums is spreading like wildfire across the continent. This fact is beginning to show on the faces and lips of the EU’s leaders.
Currently EU parliament members are debating about what direction the union should go in following Brexit, in an effort to to keep the union together. Some have proposed bringing the EU back to the days when it was a modest trading block with no political authority. Others think that the only way forward is to strengthen the EU, and turn it into a federal union much like the United States. And during that debate Jean-Claude Juncker, the President of the European Commission, appeared to have a little breakdown. When Juncker was criticized for wanting to consult ordinary Europeans on what they should do, this is what happened.
After listening to their rambling speeches a thunderous looking Mr Juncker replied:
H/t reader squodgy:
“If this gets out over Europe, the peasants will be revolting.”
JEAN-CLAUDE JUNCKER has begged EU leaders not to hold in-out referendums because he fears it will backfire and voters will choose to LEAVE.
The beleaguered European Commission president gave the desperate cry to members as the EU superstate dream slips from Brussels’ grasp following Britain’s momentous Brexit vote.
Terrified Mr Juncker admitted he knows European’s have a “lack of love” for the Brussels club.
European Union Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has called for the political bloc to scale down its role in the world while maintaining the need for the EU army.
“We are not the masters of the world,” Mr. Juncker said Wednesday at a speech in Berlin claiming that Europe, the smallest continent geographically, needed to look more at demographic challenges and build a common European army, reports Zeit Online.
H/t reader squodgy:
Can anyone else see the similarity between this…..BRUSSELS (AP) — With Britain walking away and some eastern nations routinely showing open hostility, the European Union’s chief painted a bleak picture Wednesday of the bloc and implored the 27 remaining nations to stop bickering at a time when ever more people question its relevance.

If The British needed any more confirmation of their decision to leave The EU, Jean-Claude Juncker, president of the European Commission, just gave them a big one. The often incoherent “when it’s important, you have to lie” politician spewed more United States Of Europe tripe this morning when he called for European nations to drop border controls, claiming that borders were “the worst invention ever.” Britain’s new PM, Theresa May, was not amused…
Speaking at the European Forum Alpbach in Austria’s Tyrol, Mr Juncker said: “Borders are the worst invention ever made by politicians” and said solidarity must be given to refugees and their children… (Border bullshit starts at 10:15 – note the mindless applause from the audience when Juncker drops his line)
Jean-Claude Juncker, head of the European Commission, is most famous for a 2011 quote about the Greek financial crisis, during which he stated:
When it becomes serious, you have to lie.
But that’s just one of many disturbing statements from the man. In 2014, The Telegraph published a list of his most outrageous quotes.
As such, here’s some additional evidence of what a sleazy weasel this man is.
“Lyin'” Jean-Claude Juncker, president of the European Commission, tries to prevent photographers from snapping Nigel Farage, who looks on with justifiable schadenfreude.
Why is Juncker doing this? Apparently to remind the photographer that Farage is a non-person whose image must not be seen in the newspapers.

While both Angela Merkel and David Cameron, and perhaps Boris Johnson, have been doing all they can to restore some of the badly burned bridges between the UK and Europe over the past week, the European Commission president, Jean-Claude Juncker, perhaps once again under the influence, is seemingly engaged in a one-man crusade to accelerate and crush any last hope of an amicable UK departure with lingering ties to Europe.
