‘My job here is hell,’ EU’s Juncker laments

EUROPE - In the latest frustrated comment from the EU as Brexit dealings crumble, European Commission boss Jean-Claude Juncker said his job in Brussels was “hell.” The quip came after another top EU official spoke of a hell for Brexiteers. The Devil’s domain was first mentioned by EU Council president Donald Tusk, when he lambasted the UK authorities over their attempts to change the already negotiated withdrawal agreement with the bloc.

“I have been wondering what the special place in hell looks like for those who promoted Brexit without even a sketch of a plan to deliver it safely,” Tusk said. Juncker was next to appear before the cameras in Brussels on Wednesday. The fun-loving EC chief, who was previously filmed mocking UK PM Theresa May’s dancing moves, just couldn’t let such a fiery comment as Tusk’s lie.

“I’m less Catholic than my good friend Donald. He strongly believes in heaven and by opposite in hell. I believe in heaven and I’ve never seen hell, apart from the time I was doing my job here. It’s hell,” he confessed. What Juncker was doing as part of his job in Brussels was delivering a joint message to London together with Ireland’s Prime Minister, Leo Varadkar, saying that the so-called Irish backstop in any Brexit deal won’t be renegotiated.

Our comment

The sad truth is, EU council president Donald Tusk’s comment is basically correct. When the then UK Prime minister, Mr David Cameron, staged the referendum it was assumed that people would vote to stay with Europe.

There was no plan B! They never even considered a "No" vote!

The result was chaos. The plan now in place was drafted by the EU – looking to protect EU interests.

The EU is also in a difficult situation. Several nations are “doing their own thing” which is causing disunity in Brussels. The EU is also going to take a considerable financial loss with Britain's departure.

According to fullfact.org in 2017 the UK government paid £13 billion to the EU budget, and EU spending on the UK was forecast to be £4 billion. So the UK’s "net contribution" was estimated at nearly £9 billion.

Each year the UK gets a discount on its contributions to the EU — the "rebate" — worth about £5.6 billion last year. Without it the UK would have been liable for £18.6 billion in contributions. Somehow, the EU must make up this shortfall.

The UK, “Ephraim”, is living up to his biblical description…

“Woe to the crown of pride, to the drunkards of Ephraim, whose glorious beauty is a fading flower…” (Isaiah 28:1)

“Ephraim also is like a silly dove without heart: they call to Egypt, they go to Assyria.” (Hosea 7:11)

And the end result?

“And the pride of Israel doth testify to his face: therefore shall Israel and Ephraim fall in their iniquity; Judah also shall fall with them.” (Hosea 5:5)

What we are witnessing right now is end time events building up to the return of Jesus Christ – coming to rule ALL nations - and it's not far off!

“Just what is an APOSTLE?”
Just what is an Apostle?

Today we find the Church of God in a “wilderness of religious confusion!”

The confusion is not merely around the Church – within the religions of the world outside – but WITHIN the very heart of The True Church itself!
