|Juncker now opposes "ever closer Union"|
Sweet victory for David Cameron!
In a major speech to be given in London next week, EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker will admit that Cameron is right; The European Union should give up its goal of "ever closer Union".
Juncker and Cameron have met several times in secret in order to discuss Cameron´s Europe agenda. During these meetings Cameron was able to convince Juncker that the EU should return to its original concept - a primarily free trade organisation without any ambitions to grow into a federation.
Juncker and Cameron are planning to introduce their new plan for Europe at an EU summit to be held in Brussels in May. Several EU leaders have already announced their support for the Cameron-Juncker plan.
