Jean-Claude Juncker Named ‘European Leader of the Year’

Readers will be flabbergasted to learn that the Euronews ‘European Leader of the Year’ Award last night went to… Jean-Claude Juncker. What are the chances?

Guido has compiled the best bits so you can enjoy all the self-congratulatory smugness for yourself. Juncker topped a politically diverse shortlist featuring Michel Barnier and another European Commissioner. The Euronews President is close to tears as he introduces Juncker, he looks less pleased as JC rips EU-funded Euronews to shreds during his speech. Definitely not a “propaganda instrument of the European institutions”…

Quote of the Day

Emmanuel Macron comes over all euro-sceptic…

“We ended the day on what we can call a failure. It’s a very bad image we are giving of the Council and Europe, no one can be satisfied with what happened over so many hours. Our credibility is profoundly tainted with these meetings that are too long and lead to nothing, we give an image of Europe that isn’t serious. We cannot hold talks with world leaders, in an ever more violent world, and be a club that meets at 28 without ever deciding anything.”
