According to Mr Junker he has not got a plan in case we leave because we will not leave.

I am very pleased a foreign politician is telling me how I am going to vote😡

Huh? What Juncker actually said is that the UK has no "Plan B" if eastern European countries turn down Cameron's proposals.

I imagine he is right, sadly.

DC will be spitting if his lovely plans are scuppered by a few EE countries.

Junker can go to hell, as can the eastern europeans - our prisons are full of them.

I sincerely hope he's right. I don't want to end up in an isolationist Tory England rump. Mind you, maybe Germany will accept me as a refugee...

I sincerely hope we leave the EU. Why should we stay in a group where we are bullied, patronised and ignored? Britain is worth so much more than that.

We're not going to be "isolationist" if we leave, we're going to have a very lucky escape. Britain's population is larger than that of Australia, Canada and Switzerland, all of which manage perfectly well. And you certainly don't have to be a Tory to hope for a Brexit, there are many left-wing reasons to leave the EU.

We're not leaving. As much as I would like us to. These sorts of things always go the same boring, predictable way.

I don't think we will leave either sadly, although I hope with every fibre of my being that the British people vote 'OUT' in June.

"Huh? What Juncker actually said is that the UK has no "Plan B" if eastern European countries turn down Cameron's proposals."

This will be quite a boost for the 'out' campaign. Because the lack of enforceability of the current plan means we may as well not have it, because it's quite possible that some or all of it would never happen. Or only happen years/decades into the future as it may proceed at a snail's pace through the dark eurocratic mills.

Juncker said this:

If I would say now that we have a plan B, this would indicate a kind of willingness of the Commission to envisage seriously that Britain could leave the European Union,"

So I am not entering into the details of a plan B, because we don't have a plan B, we have a plan A. Britain will stay in the European Union as a constructive and active member of the Union.
