"Monetary policy is a serious issue. We should discuss this in secret, in the Eurogroup [...] I'm ready to be insulted as being insufficiently democratic, but I want to be serious [...] I am for secret, dark debates."
Juncker quotes
“We all know what to do, we just don’t know how to get re-elected after we’ve done it.”
"I don't think Spain will need any kind of external support."

Juncker Jean-Claude quotes
"I am astonished at those who are afraid of the people: one can always explain that what is in the interest of Europe is in the interests of our countries."
"Britain is different. Of course there will be transfers of sovereignty. But would I be intelligent to draw the attention of public opinion to this fact?"
"There is a single legal personality for the EU, the primacy of European law, a new architecture for foreign and security policy, there is an enormous extension in the fields of the EU's powers, there is Charter of Fundamental Rights."
Juncker Jean-Claude
"I am determined, as is the Government, to do everything to preserve everything that we have worked for and that we believe in ... by using all necessary means to fend off the hostile (bid)."
Jean-Claude Juncker quotes
"The constitutional treaty was an easily understandable treaty. This is a simplified treaty which is very complicated."
Jean-Claude Juncker
I was going to say he's a piece of work, but that might not translate too well. Is that all right, if I call you a 'piece of work'?
Juncker Jean-Claude quotes
"If it's a Yes, we will say 'on we go', and if it's a No we will say 'we continue'."
