Jean-Claude Juncker has demanded that European Union governments sacrifice their vetoes on EU foreign policy decisions in a flagship speech that called for more national powers to be centralised in Brussels.
The president of the European Commission called on Wednesday “for a stronger, more united Europe” that could flex its muscles as a “global player”.
He said that could only be achieved by EU countries pooling their sovereignty to boost the bloc’s economic, political and military power. But he denied he was trying to turn the EU into “a superpower”.
Vile as the current set up is – and thus we’re leaving – ponder on how appalling it’s likely to get. If it manages to survive of course.
