But that would make him calculating, conniving and devious. Surely not.

"Juncker's Brexit regrets

Speaking before Mrs May announced her resignation, Mr Juncker asked: "How could anybody else achieve what she couldn't?"

"If you tell people for 40 or 45 years 'we're in it, but not really in it', we're part-time Europeans and we don't like these full-time Europeans, then you should not be surprised if people follow simple slogans once they're asked to vote in a referendum."

The UK's previous prime minister, David Cameron, clashed with Mr Juncker over the EU budget and other issues before arguing - unsuccessfully - to stay in the EU in the 2016 referendum.

Mr Juncker will be replaced by a new Commission chief - not yet chosen - in November. New leaders will be chosen for all the EU institutions after the 23-26 May European elections.

He belongs to the centre-right European People's Party, the bloc which won the last European elections in 2014.

He voiced hope that the UK would leave the EU by 31 October - the new deadline set by EU leaders. The UK did not meet the planned 29 March deadline as exit terms had not been ratified.

Mr Juncker denied that the UK Brexit vote was a personal defeat for him.

"Nobody listens to me in Britain anyway. They should, but they don't. There was nobody in Britain who confronted the lie with the incontrovertible truth," he said"

You watch, either during or after the ​​​​​​Peculiar Orange One's visit, the idea will be floated as a useful necessity to a no deal exit.
Total and complete Tory Bas#####.
Apparently Graham Brady is considering putting himself forward.

Probably, yes. He's that contemporary in his understanding of modern countries.

Let's hope he goes the way of the bendy bus in London.

I wouldn't call Momentum marxists, Commies and Trotskyists. They may be more politically active, but 1970's Labour was much more like those you label above.

They may be socialists (the horror), but you can't just fire off a bunch of buzzwords and sit there with a smug face pretending you made a point.

Nice to read a deeply thought out analysis of the Brexit issue.
Also nice to have heard from the last of the 3 stooges.
​​​​​​​Which one are you..

Again the UK will find itself with a Government led by a prime minister not elected as such by "the people".
