UK’s Cameron attempting to force vote related to next President for European Commission

David Cameron and Jean Claude Junker


The UK’s David Cameron is pressing hard to try to prevent Jean Claude Junker from becoming the next European Commission President:

Britain’s David Cameron will risk inflaming the row with fellow EU leaders over his desire to block Jean-Claude Juncker from taking the European Commission presidency by forcing an unprecedented vote on the issue this week.

The prime minister will spell out his concerns in a meeting with European Council president Herman Van Rompuy tomorrow, ahead of a meeting with counterparts from across the 28-member union on Friday.

He wants a delay in the process in an effort to find a consensus candidate, but if leaders are not even willing to consider alternatives to Mr Juncker, Mr Cameron will call a vote and require his counterparts from across the EU to set out their positions clearly.

The move would mark a distinct break from the way that the commission president is usually chosen, with the nomination agreed between the leaders.

Britain’s decision to oppose Mr Juncker’s nomination looks set for failure, after nine centre-left leaders, including French president Francois Hollande and Italy’s Matteo Renzi declared their support for Mr Juncker – the candidate nominated for the presidency by the centre-right European People’s Party (EPP).

Mr Juncker, viewed as an arch-federalist and potential road block to reform by Mr Cameron, was put forward by EPP, the largest party in the European Parliament after last month’s elections, under the “Spitzenkandidaten” process. Fine Gael is a member of the EPP.

Speaking on Fridday in Luxembourg, Minister for Finance Michael Noonan said he supported Mr Juncker’s candidacy. “I think there’s a fundamental democratic position that our party, the European People’s Party, put him forward as his candidate on the clear understanding that if we had a majority, he would be the candidate for President Barroso’s position. So I think there was a commitment to the public on that basis.”

David Cameron will call for a vote from fellow EU leaders on the next European Commission president if there is an attempt to rubber-stamp Jean-Claude Juncker in the role.

Mr Cameron opposes the ex-Luxembourg PM, whom he sees as preventing EU reforms, and will demand a vote at a summit next week.

But correspondents say it looks likely Mr Juncker will get the job.

Meanwhile, business leaders have warned about EU measures affecting the City.

The row over Mr Juncker hit the headlines a few weeks ago when Mr Cameron reportedly warned the UK could leave the EU if Mr Juncker became president of the European Commission – the body which drafts EU laws.

Mr Cameron wants a delay in the process in an effort to find a consensus candidate, but if his fellow 27 EU leaders are not even willing to consider alternatives to Mr Juncker, he will call a vote and require them to set out their positions clearly.

Germany’s Angela Merkel protested David Cameron’s opposition recently and expressed her discontent on how the UK thinks it should change the selection process.

Basically, the UK tends to be more open about its positions and many in continental Europe prefer a more clouded process. This has tended to show a division between the UK and the rest of the European Union.

It may very well be that because of people such as Jean Claude Junker (also spelled Juncker) that the UK will vote to leave the European Union next year or at a later time.

As far as the UK’s role in the future, the UK will not remain a major power in the final European configuration. The UK will be taken over and essentially devoured by the Beast power. And it may well leave prior to its final formation. Notice also the following:

Perhaps it should be mentioned that the general position within the Churches of God is that Britain will not remain in the EU and will pull out at some point. (Thiel B. Tony Blair a Catholic EU Leader? Church of God News, June 26, 2007.

The English-speaking nations will not prosper for long in connection with this system, however. In fact, they will ultimately be overpowered and destroyed by it militarily. Prior to military attack and occupation, devastating weather problems, combined with internal civil strife (“tumults in the midst” cf. Amos 3:9) will bring our nations to the point of internal collapse. (Ogywn J. The United States and Great Britain in Prophecy. Booklet, Charlotte (NC)).

It should be understood that ultimately, Britain will NOT thrive as part of the EU but will be taken over by the final European Beast power–yet its former Prime Minister is promoting something that will not help the peoples of the UK. (Thiel B. Tony Blair Calls for a Strong, Elected, EU President Church of God News, June 9, 2007.

Bible prophecy clearly shows that Britain will not be one …comprising the final United States of Europe (McNair R. A Strong United Europe. Tomorrow’s World, February 1970, p. 17).

While the disagreement about the next European Commission President is a relatively minor one, it is the latest in a series of positions that the UK has that differ from Germany.

The more influential leaders on the European continent tend to want a stronger European federal government. And that is consistent with various biblical prophecies (cf. Revelation 13, 17, 18; Daniel 7).  Eventually, that will come to pass, although I do not believe that it is likely that Jean Claude Junker will be the final European Beast leader.
