Juncker is the elected head of the EU. He was voted in by the EU Parliment, which is composed of MEP's put forward by the individual EU constituent countries. That's perfectly democratic. Nobody is sucking anyone's cock and no one is getting bummed either.https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electio ... Parliament
And Juncker is from Luxembourg, he's not German.
The UK should have tried to engage with the EU and improved it for the better. I'm sure that Ireland, Scotland and Wales would have agreed with most of any proposed changes, as might other countries. You sent Farage.
Was Farage trying to do anything constructive? No, he was going to the Parliment and telling everyone there what fools they were every chance he got. And he sent that message back to blighty for dim lads to read in tabloids.
Instead of trying to make Europe, the world, a better place, you have thrown your toys out of the pram and sulked off. The EU was created with the best of ideals in mind - the spirit of cooperation etc., and to never let needless divisions cause strife and wars like in the past.
We really need that now more than ever with a nasty, narrow-minded spirit seems to be sweeping around globally and manifesting itself politically on the far right with Wilders, Hocke, Le Pen, Farage, Trump etc.
I think Germany as a country is very invested in the EU, but ethically
as well as financially. Part of it is its the logical path but it's also a kind of atonement for the countries past. The war changed the national character and most Germans - even the young still being born - feel war guilt. They are for more integration, not less.
I think now may be the moment where Britain (England) realises it's not an empire anymore... Just another island off Europe. The reality will set in.
