Arrogant and only occasionally sober European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has launched an astonishing attack on the British press and argued he ‘could have swung’ the Brexit referendum towards Remain.
He told the Australian media that the British press do not “respect the human rights of political actors”. He revealed that then Prime Minister David Cameron told him to ‘keep out’ of the referendum in June 2016 in which Britain decided to exit the European Union.
Mind-boggingly he inisted: “If the Commission had intervened, perhaps the right questions would have entered the debate.” He continued to say that he is “amazed” he is “always” blamed for the result.
However, Leave-supporting MPs swiftly hit back. Frank Field, an ardent Labour advocate of Brexit, said: “There is no delusion that does not have an attraction for that man.” He argued that Brits would have more decisively backed Brexit had Juncker intervened. Sir Bill Cash, Tory MP, meanwhile described his comments as “off the wall.”
Quite, everytime Juncker opens his mouth it confirms the majority of British people in their desire to run as far away from the EU as they possibly can.
