EU leaders are 'flicking two fingers' at the British people by pushing ahead with their choice for the European Commission presidency, Iain Duncan Smith claimed today.
In an extraordinary attack, the Work and Pensions Secretary slammed attempts to ignore the rising tide of Euroscepticism to hand the top Brussels job to arch-federalist Jean-Claude Juncker.
David Cameron is heading for defeat in his attempt to block Mr Juncker's appointment, who is facing claims he is unfit for the job because of his alleged ‘boozing’.

Other EU leaders are standing by Mr Juncker, who is viewed as a potential road block Mr Cameron’s hopes of reforms to claw powers back from the EU.
His appointment is expected to be agreed at a summit on Friday, wit Mr Cameron planning to push for a vote to force his opponents to explain their decision.
Mr Duncan Smith said the EU needed to be 'roughed up a bit about this' just weeks after anti-EU parties won vast swathes of the vote in the European Parliament elections.
He told BBC Radio 5 Live's Pienaar's Politics: 'If they give Jean-Claude Juncker a job this is like literally flicking two fingers at the rest of Europe and saying to all the people out there "we know that you voted the way you did but you are wrong and we are just going to show you how wrong you are by carrying on as though nothing happened".'
Mr Duncan Smith hinted he could vote for Britain to leave the EU, even if the Prime Minister recommended staying in after a renegotiation.
He said: 'I have always been of the view that there needs to be major change within the European Union if Britain is to honestly think this is a viable enterprise for us. It's not right now, it's heading in the wrong direction.'
It seems like everything than can force Britain out keeps on coming. The fact is Britain will leave the European Union according to Bible Prophecy. The Bible has long said (2,500 yrs ago to be exact) that Britain will not be a part of the European Union when Russia and the EU invade the Middle East.
