Juncker: British Are Part Time Europeans

JEAN Claude Juncker has had a parting shot at Britain tonight ahead of us leaving the EU on October 31st.

The outgoing president of the European Commission told EuroNews - “The British were told for more than 40 years that they were in but they didn't want to share all the policies that have been decided.”

"The British from the very beginning were part-time Europeans, what we need is full-time Europeans.”

“It is a tragedy and it is a failure, but I have to say I don’t think it is mine because I didn’t decide to have this referendum.”

Mr Juncker said not a single UK government had explained or defended - “the place of Britain in the European Union.”

(Tony Blair did!)

“If you are telling the people over decades that this is not exactly what we wanted, don’t be surprised if a referendum is answered in a negative way.”

“By the way, I was probably the only one who was not surprised by the outcome.”
