Jean-Claude Juncker: Did he say the EU will allow no more delays because he wants to be the president who got Brexit done?

Jean-Claude Juncker would like to go down in history as the President who saw the UK leave the EU, it seems.

He has said that, now a new Brexit delay has been forged with Boris Johnson’s government, no further attempts to prolong the UK’s membership of the bloc will be allowed.

There’s just one problem: he doesn’t have the power to say that.

If the UK petitions for a further delay – possibly to January 31 next year, it will be for the 27 other EU member states to decide, not a president whose term in office is nearly over.

The most Mr Juncker’s outburst can be said to have done is flush out the biases of certain mainstream UK media reporters – if we didn’t already know what they were:

It seems clear that the deal will not win enough support in Parliament. Labour is against it…

Liberal Democrat leader Jo Swinson has already spoken up against the deal.

It’s all falling apart around Boris Johnson, just when he hoped it was coming together.
