JEAN-CLAUDE Juncker today took a swipe at successive British governments as he accused them of causing Brexit by wrongly blaming Brussels for their own open door migration policies.

In candid remarks the EU Commission chief said UK ministers had repeatedly pointed the finger at Europe as a way of covering up for their unpopular decisions and mistakes.

In particular he said the reason EU migration is such a big issue in Britain compared to other member states was because politicians here had actively encouraged people to come in large numbers.

His comments, made on the eve of the bloc’s 60th birthday celebration in Rome, are designed as a warning to other European leaders not to play a “dangerous” blame game with their own voters.

Writing in The Guardian, the Brussels boss also said that the EU would actively seek continued cooperation with the UK on a large range of issues even after it has left the club.
