Jean -Claude Juncker’s revenge threats to campaign for the break up of the United States shows the bitter desperation of Eurocrats to stop their own union collapsing.
Apparently the EU Commission president’s remarks that he would push for Ohio and Texas to split from the rest of America if Donald Trump does not become more supportive of the EU were not meant to be taken literally.
But it does reveal how worried Juncker et al are, not just about Brexit, but the very possible knock on effect on some of the remaining 27 member states.
I personally have no doubt that as we progress along the bumpy road to regaining our independence, which we were tricked into relinquishing four decades ago, people in other EU countries will look on enviously and may well follow in our courageous footsteps.
