Jean-Claude Juncker ‘doubts EU will remain united during Brexit talks’, as he says he will not run for another term
In the face of long term problems such as high unemployment, unsustainable levels of debt, the hollowing out of economies, to which can be added migration… all in the context of a lethargic decision making process in an increasingly bureaucratic Brussels… one would expect evidence of efforts to tackle these issues. These issues are a direct result of Brussels action (or inaction) and line taken by Juncker needs to embrace reform so that things can be fixed. If the EU had embraced reform there would be no Brexit… perhaps that might galvanise reform. The EU is a millstone to the Club Med economies – perhaps Brexit will precipitate change.
