    Never mind his grotesque salary and the increase he recently had to boost his pension when he steps down, he’s also “grotesque toward women”. Nothing would surprise me with this awful man.

    The obviius answer is: yeah... the tories are so well behaved towards women...

    But, yes, Junkers not only sounds like a defunct ww2 nazi plane, he behaves like one crashing as well.

    I feel if this forum were to choose a word of the year it should be "whataboutism".

    In the Netherlands, the EPP is represented by christian-democratic parties. So they can vote him out by not voting for them.

    Your point is quite elusive - Juncker has been democratically elected and he can be voted out like any other (indirectly) elected official.

    You can’t vote out Theresa May either.
    Her party can.

    And you can say what you want about Junkers (and believe me I do), at least he doesn’t skull-shag dead pigs.

    Not directly by the public he cannot.

    Good grief. Again?

    Yes we can, she is a sitting MP, her constituency is Maidenhead. MPs are elected directly by the public. Junker is not.

    Junker wasnt even wanted by most EU countries!

    Yes he can - during the next elections, parliament groups will put forward their candidates and people can vote accordingly.

    In fact, Juncker was put forward as a candidate by the EPP before the elections. Every informed voter was aware that an EPP plurality would mean that Juncker would head the Commission. He was elected by voters who supported the EPP in large numbers. Deal with it.
