    Default No other countries will quit EU after Britain: EU chief Juncker

    "European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker is not worried about other EU countries leaving the bloc after Britain because Brexit will make them see it is not a good option, he said in a newspaper interview.

    Asked by Bild am Sonntag newspaper if other member states would follow Britain's example in quitting, Juncker said: "No. Britain's example will make everyone realise that it's not worth leaving."

    He added: "On the contrary, the remaining member states will fall in love with each other again and renew their vows with the European Union."

    The EU's 27 leaders plan to declare "Europe is our common future" during a meeting in Rome next week to mark 60 years of the bloc."

    He's a politician, FFS.

    He isn't exactly going to turn around and say "Other nations will likely follow Britain's example and leave the EU, and we're bricking it that our gravy train is about to fail."

    Of course he's going to talk it up. He isn't the most honest of politicians out there.

    Gordon Bennet! That picture! The bloke is 62 years old and has more wrinkles than the 80+ ladies at my writer's club. Shows what membership of the EU does to you.
