Nigel Farage TERRIFIED at Juncker's plan for UNDEMOCRATIC EU

After listening to more than an hour of Jean-Claude Juncker's self-agrandising State of the Union speech Farage’s laser-guided attack took just seconds to dismantle almost every plan, proposal and pontification made by the former Luxembourg politician turned European Commission President.
He called Jean-Claude Juncker’s plans to hugely expand the powers of the EU without a vote “extremely worrying” and shouted: “Thank God we’re leaving! You’ve learned nothing from Brexit!”
The former Ukip boss, and champion of Brexit, added that Juncker and his colleagues were appointing powerful unelected people in positions of huge power including “a finance minister who intervenes when he feels it necessary” and plans for “a European army with a more aggressive foreign policy.”
“And all this to be done without the consent of the people.”
Mr Farage was clearly appalled by Junker’s earlier claim that the EU could appoint pan-European ministers with unprecedented powers WITHOUT any form of electoral process.
Juncker said: “A European Monetary Fund needs to be anchored in the European Union. We need a European minister of economy and finance, a minister to promote structural reform in our member states. 
“These euro-wide policies in the EU don’t need treaty change as long as it is decided in the European Council.”

Farage said: “Mr Juncker, that was the most open, honest and most worrying speech I ever heard. What you’re saying is: Brexit has happened, full steam ahead!”
Attacking European proposals to introduce a bizarrely complex pan-European voting system Mr Farage said: “Genuine democratic parties of oppostions won’t be able to compete on a level playing field.”
And pointing to the seemingly wilful need for the EU to shoot itself in the foot he added: “You have learned nothing from Brexit. If you had given David Cameron concessions on immigration Brexit would never have happened.”
European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker on Wednesday proposed that the EU create its own Europe-wide finance minister, a big step towards deeper integration of the eurozone.
The proposal matches a similar demand by French President Emmanuel Macron, who believes that the eurozone needs stronger institutions in order to avoid shocks such as the debt crisis or Brexit.
"We need a European Minister of Economy and Finance," Juncker said in his annual State of the Union speech to the European Parliament in Strasbourg.
"I am not calling for a new position just for the sake of it. I am calling for efficiency," Juncker said.
He said the job would combine the role of EU commissioner and the head of the Eurogroup of eurozone finance ministers, currently presided by Dutch finance minister Jeroen Dijsselbloem.
Juncker added that he was "not fond of the idea of having a separate euro area parliament", another idea promoted by Macron.
He also insisted that the fight to ensure that multinationals pay a fair tax be strengthened, notably by making it easier to approve tax reforms.
On tax, "Europe has to be able to act quicker and more decisively," he said.
This would require that EU tax policy be approved by a majority of member states and not the existing requirement of unanimity among the EU's 28 member states, he said.
Juncker said that he would also propose that the eurozone's bailout fund, the European Stability Mechanism, become a full fledged European Monetary Fund.
This would be based on the model of the International Monetary Fund, the US-dominated crisis bank that took a major role in the eurozone debt crisis.
