Blackmail: David Cameron reportedly told German Chancellor Angela Merkel Jean-Claude Juncker's appointment could lead to Britain's exit from the EU
David Cameron was accused of blackmail last night after warning Britain could quit the EU if an arch-federalist is appointed to head the European Commission.
The Prime Minister voiced his opposition last week to the prospect of Jean-Claude Juncker being appointed to the role, warning it would enrage Eurosceptic voters across Europe.
Yesterday it emerged that he had gone further in private, reportedly telling German Chancellor Angela Merkel it could lead to Britain’s departure from the EU.
Mr Juncker, a former prime minister of Luxembourg, is a veteran enthusiast for the creation of a ‘United States of Europe’.
Mr Cameron believes handing him the controls in Brussels would send a provocative message to the millions across Europe who voted for Eurosceptic parties in last month’s EU parliamentary elections.
The respected German magazine Der Spiegel said that in private talks with Mrs Merkel, the Prime Minister branded Mr Juncker a ‘face from the 1980s’ who ‘cannot solve the problems of the next five years’.
He is said to have warned that the selection of Mr Juncker ‘would destabilise his government to such an extent that the referendum would have to be brought forward and will be likely to lead to the British voting no to EU membership’.
Downing Street sources did not dispute Mr Cameron’s reported attack on Mr Juncker last night.
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.
