The European Commission's newly-elected head Jean-Claude Juncker found himself heckled by Eurosceptics in the European Parliament. Mr Juncker told MEPs (in French): "The single currency protects Europe." He was subsequently heckled by some who deemed it "rubbish".
He accused Ukip leader Nigel Farage, a staunch opponent of the appointment, of "secretly" voting for the former leader of Luxembourg.
Mr Juncker addressed him (in French): "I'm led to believe that your Parliament will vote by a secret ballot. And I understand that, because Mr Farage wouldn't want his voters to discover he voted for me".
