- Juncker is playing the ‘Bad Cop’ in a ‘Good Cop’ – ‘Bad Cop’ routine. The ‘Good Cop‘ appears to be Emmanuel (“god” with us) Macron. The ‘Good Cop’ will save Europe from all the problems Juncker created by instituting a 10 countries federation: United States of Europe.
- ‘A FOOL’S VISION’ Juncker’s plans could lead to total collapse of the EU – German MEP

JEAN-CLAUDE JUNCKER’S “fool’s vision” of Europe could lead to the break-up of the European Union after Brexit, according to a German MEP.
Hans-Olaf Henkel, vice-president of the European Parliament’s third-largest group the European Conservatives and Reformists, said Brexit was a “big disaster” that Mr Juncker was ignoring. European Commission president Mr Juncker delivered his much-anticipated State of the Union speech on Wednesday with a swipe at Britain by insisting the EU will move towards greater integration despite Brexit.
But, speaking to Express.co.uk, Mr Henkel said the UK’s decision to leave the Brussels bloc would be just as bad for the EU as Britain. He said: “He called it a full vision of Europe. I must say, it was more a fools vision of Europe because he seemed to have totally ignored the realities of Europe.
Mr Juncker set out his 12-month masterplan to steer the troubled bloc through the escalating refugee crisis and laid out plans to reform the eurozone. Keen to push ahead with his masterplan, billed as the biggest reboot in the EU’s history, Mr Juncker ratcheted-up the federalisation of the 60-year-old bloc’s core economies.
The Brussels boss has also called for EU integration in the face of rising populism after Britain voted to sever ties with the bloc ahead of crunch elections in Italy, Sweden, Hungary and the Czech Republic, where eurosceptic parties are gaining momentum.
It appears Jean-Claude Juncker is keen to make his mark in the EU as his five-year term as European Commission president expires in 2019 with his grand ambition to rebuild the bloc, left in tatters after Britain’s momentous decision to leave.
