His term of self-serving smart-assery will come to an end once the remaining EU powerbases realise that his amusing anti-UK rhetoric is actually not helping anyone. Here are a few of his gems, which reveal why the EU in its current forum and current leadership is finished:
Just look at Juncker... doing what?
On Greece's economic meltdown in 2011
"When it becomes serious, you have to lie.
On EU monetary policy
"I'm ready to be insulted as being insufficiently democratic, but I want to be serious ... I am for secret, dark debates"
On British calls for a referendum over Lisbon Treaty
“Of course there will be transfers of sovereignty. But would I be intelligent to draw the attention of public opinion to this fact?,”
On French referendum over EU constitution
“If it's a Yes, we will say 'on we go', and if it's a No we will say 'we continue’,”
On the introduction of the euro
"We decide on something, leave it lying around, and wait and see what happens. If no one kicks up a fuss, because most people don't understand what has been decided, we continue step by step until there is no turning back."
On eurozone economic policy and democracy
“We all know what to do, we just don't know how to get re-elected after we've done it”
