How can the EU interfere in a situation both the UK and the EU were both intrinsically part of?
As a sovereign nation, the decision to remain or leave the EU rested solely with the people of the UK and nobody else.
Juncker's threats on the eve of the referendum followed by the exact opposite statements after the decision didn't go the "right" way, was just one clear example of the EU interfering in UK democracy.
The president of the European Commission has warned British voters ahead of next month’s referendum on EU membership that “deserters will not be welcomed back with open arms”. Jean-Claude Juncker’s comments are the strongest intervention yet from the head of the EU’s executive arm, who previously said he would stay out of the Brexit debate.
Jean-Claude Juncker on Wednesday doubled down on his calls for a second Brexit referendum and said he would help Britain re-join the bloc even if the UK finally does leave the European Union.
Yesterday, he agreed with Donald Tusk, the European Council president, who told MEPs the EU’s “hearts are open” to a British Brexit reversal.
On Wednesday, Mr Juncker went further in what appears to be the latest step in a carefully coordinated salvo to boost the spirits of those British politicians and people who want to stop Brexit.
“Our hand remains outstretched. The British people, the British government may wish to find a different way out. We’re very much willing to deal with them,”
