For those supporting the British exit from the European Union, a new video could not come at a better time. EU critics have argued that Britain is being ruled by five “presidents” that no one can name and Brits have little voice in selecting. As if on cue, one of those five –Luxembourgish politician Jean-Claude Juncker — appeared in public in what appears to be an inebriated state — even playfully slapping people.
The former Prime Minister of Luxembourg, Jean-Claude Juncker has been President of the European Commission, the executive branch of the European Union (EU) since 2014. This is not the first time he has been accused of being intoxicated in public.
Making this even more delicious for EU critics, Juncker is viewed as anti-British and the British government sought unsuccessfully to block his reappointment. Juncker has also argued for the creation of an EU army — a plan that has been much discussed by critics but downplayed by the British government before the vote on the EU referendum on June 23rd.
