'Sh*t! What do you want me to do?' Moment Juncker LOSES IT with whining MEPs over EU plans

Lynsey_ADMIN_Lynsey_ADMIN_ Administrator

THIS is the extraordinary moment an exasperated Jean-Claude Juncker finally snapped at MEPs whining about his landmark consultation on the future of the EU, barking: “Sh*t, what do you want me to do?”

The Brussels chief lost it with representatives of the EU parliament after they attacked his plans to consult ordinary European voters on which path eurocrats should take to save the bloc from collapsing. 

His outburst came at the end of a gruelling hour and fifteen minute debate on the EU Commission’s highly publicised white paper, during which MEPs repeatedly called on Mr Juncker to voice his personal opinions. 

Eurocrats have outlined five “pathways” they believe the EU can take post-Brexit, ranging from reverting back to a simple trading bloc right through to the establishment of a full-blown United States of Europe. 

And whilst Mr Juncker dismissed the first of those options, saying the EU is “more than a free trade area”, he has refused to be drawn on what he thinks of the other four saying that he does not want to pre-judge the public debate.
