JunckerBRITONS will be labelled ‘deserters’ should they vote to leave the EU, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has warned.

In a damning blow for the Leave campaign, Juncker said the UK would face ‘serious consequences’ and would be treated as a ‘third country’ should the country vote for Brexit.

“The deserters will not be welcomed with open arms,” Juncker said. “If the British public vote Leave, which I hope they don’t, then life in the EU will not go on as before.

“The UK will have to accept that it won’t be handled with kid gloves.

“If the British leave Europe, people will have to face the consequences. Relations will no longer be what they are today.”

  1. What a grotty little man Juncker is. My ballot papers arrived on Saturday and I’m reluctantly voting to remain but many people will think it is worth leaving just to stick two fingers up to him. If the EU is to have anything that resembles a future, this cretin has to go.

    • Ashamed of what? Stop talking nonsense. The UK already has serious structural problems without the EU. It’s national debt is out of control and it has a illegal immigration problem that cannot be solved (despite not even being in the Schengen zone). The NHS funds non-EU patients 400% more than EU patients. These are the facts.
