Gunnar Hökmarks kandidat får underkänt av David Cameron, UK PM


David Cameron, Britain’s prime minister, is to launch a diplomatic offensive after this week’s European elections to try to stop the veteran federalist Jean-Claude Juncker from taking the top job in Brussels. 

Downing Street fears that Mr Juncker, a supporter of European integration, would represent “business as usual” in Brussels. 

Mr Juncker, a wily Brussels fixer, has the backing of the centre-right European People’s party. 

The British prime minister has told allies that the former Luxembourg prime minister, who is the lead candidate of Europe’s main centre-right parties for the post of European Commission 

president, would be “totally unacceptable”.
