David Cameron: 'We can do business' with Juncker

David Cameron has insisted he can "do business" with the new President of the European Commission, despite having vigorously opposed his appointment.

Writing in the Daily Telegraph, the Prime Minister admitted he was "isolated" over the decision to instal Jean-Claude Juncker at the head of the EU's executive branch, but insisted he was "right" to take a strong stance on the issue.

At the same time, Mr Cameron stressed he was now "ready to move on and keep fighting for Britain’s interests in Europe".

He remained clear that his government was strongly opposed to being involved in further EU integration, saying: "If...we can agree that we are not heading, at different speeds, to the same place – as some have assumed up to now – then there is business we can do".
