Juncker: Total nonsense to claim I want a superstate
The European Commission president said he was ‘strictly against’ a United States of Europe.
European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker has accused British politicians such as Boris Johnson of talking “total nonsense” when they accuse him of seeking to create a European superstate.
His comments came as he answered questions at a press conference in Brussels taking place as the Foreign Secretary made a high-profile speech on Brexit in London.
Mr Juncker replied: “Some in the British political society are against the truth, pretending that I am a stupid, stubborn federalist, that I am in favour of a European superstate.
“The European Union cannot be built against the European nations, so this is total nonsense.”
