Poll: Just 8.2% of Europeans Can Name Jean-Claude Juncker

Just 8.2% of EU nationals could name the lofty European Commission presidency candidate Jean-Claude Juncker, a poll conducted by the Alliance of Conservatives and Reformists has found. 91.8% haven’t got a clue who he is.

Having had the selection process explained to them – that political parties at the European level run candidates for the role – 89.9% said that this should not be the criteria for selection. Just 10.10% supported the process.

Now that’s what you call a mandate…

    Aren’t I hilarious? I’ve spent 3 weeks rehearsing my joke for today. I’m a real left wing hero. Which is why I took a mistress to a 5 star hotel suite a few years back.

    Cunting Davies says:

    Davies switched to Labour the night before Brown became PM. In his letter to Cameron announcing his move, Davies said:

    “I am looking forward to joining another party…which has just acquired a leader I have always greatly admired, who I believe is entirely straightforward, and who has a towering record, and a clear vision for the future of our country which I fully share.”
    :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D

    He has a nerve to show his face in public after saying that!

    Just once I wish someone would ruin Skinner’s pathetic moment by shouting something at the same time to obscure his “joke”. That would make the old arsehole boil.

    Of that 8.2% at least half will assume Junkers is just another arsehole chosen by fellow Europhiles with an agenda.

    When you join a gym you don’t get to appoint the manager or choose the menu in the cafe. You just pay your fees and get on with it.

    So, Britain. Pay your fees , stop moaning, and get on with supporting the federalisation of Europe.

    Very sharp reporting:

    To quote from the poll:

    ‘Only 8.2% of respondents were able to name the European People‘s Party‘s lead candidate, J’ean C’laude J’uncker. Awareness of the candidates in general was also low: only 13.6% of the respondents could name at least one of the candidates.’

    ‘The most recognisable candidate was M’artin S’chulz (30.3%) while J’ean-C’laude J’uncker was recognised by 25.9%. Least known was S’ka K’eller (5%).’

    There is no breakdown of the voting intention or alignment of those questioned in the poll either: ie. Were only AECR voters polled ?

    J’uncker’s campaign was less high profile than that of S’chulz / V’erhofstadt. He also did sign the Federalist list. S’keller would only have been known to G’reen supporters.

    S’chulz could have had higher awareness as M’erkel was controversially involved in his campaign.

    What is missing is that the AECR did not field a presidential candidate, denying those in the UK who voted MEPs aligned with that group a voice in the presidential vote.

    (Those who voted UKIP would not have wanted one. So EFD not fielding a candidate is logical)

    Additionally, the AECR are wishing for certain extremist parties, such as the True Finn group, to join in order to mute EFD in the EP.

    Attempting to undermine democracy in this way is highly irresponsible: Positioning to force the presidential decision to be settled through passerelle is not good either.

    Vote UKIP :-D

    Mon dieu/mein gott. 8.2% can name me……far too many. I need to work in the shadows and leave no trail back to me. I said in 2011

    ‘ Monetary policy is a serious issue. We should discuss this in secret,
    in the Eurogroup […] I’m ready to be insulted as being insufficiently
    democratic, but I want to be serious […] I am for secret, dark debates’

    I have not been misquoted.

Peter Oborne makes a bold prediction

“I predict that Labour and the Conservatives will win between them a higher proportion of seats than at any election since 1992.”
