Juncker Discouraged

JEAN-CLAUDE Juncker has announced he is to quit as European Commission President after one term as he revealed he fears Brexit will divide the bloc in a “continental tragedy”.

The former Luxembourg Prime Minister said he will not be running for a second term in 2019 despite spouting forth about how he “fell in love with Europe again” and its diversity during the last election campaign in 2014.

Then British Prime Minister David Cameron and Hungarian leader Viktor Orban were the only two members to object to Mr Juncker’s selection three years ago.

Europe’s biggest fan has now said he fears the 27 remaining members of the European Union (EU) will fall out over Brexit negotiations.
He told German radio Deutschlandfunk: “The fact that a country is leaving – above all a large, important, influential country – remains a continental tragedy in my opinion.

“The other 27 are not yet aware of this, but the Brits know very well how they can tackle it.
