Nigel Farage has called incoming European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker the ultimate Brussels insider'.
ITV News Political Correspondent Carl Dinnen has tweeted during a meeting with the European Parliament:
Farage to Juncker 'You are a sociable cove with a very much better sense of humour than most people I've met in Brussels.'
But Mr Farage says Mr Juncker is the ultimate Brussels insider. Juncker looks on arms crossed.
Farage has to laugh as Juncker says at least secret ballot will hide the fact that the UKIP leader voted for him.
