Britain took another step towards the EU exit door as David Cameron warned that Jean-Claude Junckerâ€™s appointment to the top job in Brussels would make it harder to persuade the public to remain in the 28-nation bloc.
Mr Cameronâ€™s stark warning came after he suffered a humiliating defeat in his lonely battle to stop the veteran federalist becoming president of the European Commission. At a Brussels summit, EU leaders voted 26-2 to nominate Mr Juncker after Mr Cameron demanded an unprecedented formal vote on a post traditionally settled by consensus. Hungary's Viktor Orban was the only leader to back the Prime Minister.
Asked if the crushing setback had taken the UK closer to an EU exit, Mr Cameron told a press conference: â€śThe job has got harder of keeping Britain in a reformed Europe. The stakes are higher. Do I think it is an impossible job? No.â€ť...
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
The EU proving its Socialist Liberal credentials yet again. Like all 'good' socialists they are gradually working towards telling the people what to say - think - and do - for their own good.
Mr Obama will be very happy with this appointment since he is Liberal socialist too - perhaps more Liberal than socialist.
I sincerely hope the people of Britain kick the EU out of their lives completely. Although other things threaten the UK like so called Scottish independence - which translated means for Alex Salmond - Transfer Scotland from Westminster to Brussels. Which is ZERO independence.
