EU superstate will rise ‘day after Brexit’, by Bruno Waterfield.
Jean-Claude Juncker has been accused of proposing “the blueprint for a United States of Europe” with vast centralised powers to be agreed at a special summit the day after Brexit.
The European Commission president insisted that Britain would be quick to regret its decision to leave as he used his annual “state of the union” address to urge the EU to move on.
Leaders of the Netherlands and Denmark warned that Mr Juncker was overreaching in response to Brexit with plans for a single and more powerful EU president and for Bulgaria and Romania to join the barrier-free Schengen travel zone.
