An EU agenda: keeping British in, Russians out, Germans down By Paul Taylor ROME (Reuters) - The first secretary-general of NATO, Lord Ismay, once said the Western defense alliance was created "to keep the Americans in, the Russians out and the Germans down". The task facing the European Union now might be described as to keep the British in, the Russians out and the Germans down. BRITISH IN Prime Minister David Cameron's demand to redraw Britain's relationship with the EU and put the result to a referendum in 2017 means the next few years are bound to be dogged by haggling over Brussels' powers and about opt-outs for London. If Britain, Europe's third largest economy, main financial center and joint biggest military and diplomatic power, were to become the first country ever to leave the bloc, it would deal a severe blow to itself but also to the EU's global standing. Last month's confrontation over the nomination of Jean-Claude Juncker as European Commission president against adamant British opposition ...
By Michael Leigh THE EUROPEAN Council’s nomination of Jean-Claude Juncker, the former Prime Minister of Luxembourg, as future European Commission President appears to be a crushing defeat for British Prime Minister David Cameron. Indeed, his attempt to block Juncker’s nomination was clumsy and...
British Prime Minister David Cameron yesterday (30 June) defended in Parliament his failure to prevent Jean-Claude Juncker’s nomination by EU leaders as European Commission President.
POLITICS: BE WARNED. On the one hand we’re told that Francis Hollande won’t back Juncker. The next thing – Hollande backs Juncker. I wonder what he was offered to change his mind? Cameron doesn’t stand a chance, the road to a superstate rolls on, bringing with it more undemocratic decisions until in some years to come, it won’t be necessary to take a vote, every decision and law will be taken by undemocratic bureaucrats in Brussels. Cameron and Hollande refuse to back Juncker for Europe’s top job Jean-Claude Juncker may be the man the centre-right European People’s Party want as president of the European Commission but he won’t have an easy ride. The German press reports on Sunday that both British Prime Minister David Cameron and French President Francois Hollande say they won’t back him. German newspaper Der Spiegel quotes Cameron as saying the UK would bring forward a referendum on EU membership if Junker got the top job. Cameron was speaking on the sidelines of an EU summit in Brusse ...
UK's David Cameron says voters did not choose Jean-Claude Juncker for top EU job: British Prime Minister David Cameron on Friday made his strongest public intervention yet to stop Jean-Claude Juncker becoming the next European Commission president, saying it was nonsense to suggest that European voters had chosen him. Cameron does not want Juncker to get the job as he views him as too much of an old-style federalist who will obstruct his push to reform the European Union and persuade British voters of the merits of staying within the 28-nation bloc. Cameron has promised to renegotiate Britain's ties with Brussels, ahead of holding an in/out referendum on the country's EU membership by 2017 if he wins a national election next year. While he has made his opposition to Juncker clear, repeatedly saying the job should go to someone more reform-minded, he has largely shied away from referring to him by name. On Friday the Prime Minister warned against the suggestion of some in the European Parliament that the j ...
Tradition has it that when leaders visit the Swedish country residence of Harpsund, the Prime Minister rows them out on to the lake. So on a sunny Monday evening Sweden's Fredrick Reinfeldt cast off with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Holland's Mark Rutte and Prime Minister David Cameron. The images of leaders in life jackets rowing round in circles lent themselves to many metaphors but the tranquil lake hardly set the scene for the discussions ahead. Mr Cameron has suggested the UK might cut adrift from Europe if Jean-Claude Juncker becomes the next president of the European Commission.
BERLIN — German-British tensions over who should next lead the European Union appeared to heighten on Tuesday as Chancellor Angela Merkel delivered a scarcely veiled rebuke to Prime Minister David Cameron of Britain, warning that “threats” will not work as the 28 members struggle to mend new fissures in their unity aggravated by European Parliament elections last month. Nationalist and populist parties with a firm anti-European Union stance achieved striking gains in those elections. In France and Britain, such parties shockingly finished in first place, heightening both the unevenness of the Franco-German partnership at the Continent’s core and Mr. Cameron’s problem over whether his country, increasingly skeptical of the value of European Union inclusion, remains a member. The resulting feud has crystallized around Jean-Claude Juncker, the former Luxembourg Prime Minister. Ms. Merkel has backed him, if somewhat halfheartedly, to be the new president of the European Commission, the European Unio ...
