Fox: Juncker's Arrogance Has Been "Astonishing"
Liam Fox says the arrogance of the European Commission's Jean Claude Juncker in dealing with the UK has been "astonishing".
Liam Fox is clearly unimpressed with the way that European Commission President Jean Claude Juncker has dealt with Britain.
After Juncker's latest comments made clear he wasn't planning on offering the UK any more reforms, Leave's Fox accused him of "astonishing" arrogance.
Cameron "got the maximum he could receive, the maximum we could get," said Juncker, in quotes read by LBC's Iain Dale.
"The arrogance of Mr Juncker has been astonishing," responded Fox. "Just a couple of weeks ago he actually said there would be 'no dealing with deserters'.
"And for a country like the UK which has been there twice in the last century to save Europe from fascism and its own folly, I thought that was absolutely so insulting.
"One of the words that has been dropped by the Remain campaign is 'reformed'...they've notably dropped that from everything they've said because there isn't really a reformed EU.
Fox continued: "We had the British Prime Minister, who wanted genuine reform, reduced to a politicla version of Oliver Twist, going around the European capitals asking for a little bit more."
